► CES-induced current passes the skull and reaches cortical and subcortical areas.

► CES induced brain electric fields ranges from 0.2 to 0.6 V/m depending on the model.

► CES induced electrical current varies according to the electrode montage.

► Peak electric fields in some subcortical areas were similar to cortical regions.

► CES induced currents in the mid-brain exceed cortical values in some montages.
