Objectives. Computational methods are increasingly used to optimize transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) dose strategies and yet complexities of existing approaches limit their clinical access. Since predictive modelling indicates the relevance of subject/ …

The mechanisms of action of tDCS for behavioral modification are not yet fully understood. However, 3 one common observation is that its behavioral effects are most pronounced and long-lasting when tDCS 4 is paired with endogenous, training-induced brain activity (1). In
