Study: tDCS paired with cognitive video game training can help MS patients

Combined therapy pairing transcranial direct current stimulation and cognitive training computer games can increase problem solving ability and response time in patients with multiple sclerosis, according to a new study. Results from the study, performed by researchers at NYU’s Langone’s Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center, was published today in the journal Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface. Data from the study indicated that MS patients who used tDCS while playing cognitive training computer games designed to improve information processing abilities reported “significantly greater gains in cognitive measures” than those who performed the training games alone. Participants in the study were able to complete both the cognitive training and…
