Intentional binding effect in children: insights from a new paradigm
Publication year: 2014
URL:
http://journal.frontiersin.org/Journal/10.3389/fnhum.2014.00651/abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Intentional binding (IB) refers to the temporal attraction between a voluntary action and its sensory consequence. Since its discovery in 2002, it has been considered to be a valid implicit measure of sense of agency (SoA), since it only occurs in the context of voluntary actions. The vast majority of studies considering IB have recruited young adults as participants, while neglecting possible age-related differences. The aim of the present work is to study the development of IB in 10-year-old children. In place of Libet’s classical clock method, we decided to implement a new and more suitable paradigm in order to study IB, since children could have some difficulties in dealing with reading clocks. A stream of unpredictable letters was therefore used: participants had to remember which letter was on the screen when they made a voluntary action, heard a sound, or felt their right index finger moved down passively. In Experiment I, a group of young adults was tested in order to replicate the IB effect with this new paradigm. In Experiment II, the same paradigm was then administered to children in order to investigate whether such an effect has already emerged at this age. The data from Experiment I showed the presence of the IB effect in adults. However, Experiment II demonstrated a clear reduction of IB. The comparison of the two groups revealed that the young adult group differed from the children, showing a significantly stronger linkage between actions and their consequences. The results indicate a developmental trend in the IB effect. This finding is discussed in light of the maturation process of the frontal cortical network.

Neural dissociation of automatic and controlled temporal preparation by transcranial magnetic stimulation
Publication year: 2014
URL:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0028393214003832
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Recent neuropsychological evidence suggested a role for the right prefrontal cortex in temporal orienting of attention guided by symbolic cues, and the left prefrontal cortex in preparation guided by rhythms. We tested this hypothesis by comparing the effects of 1-Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) over prefrontal regions on the performances of two temporal preparation tasks, one using symbolic cues (short vs. long lines) and the other using regular rhythms (fast vs. slow pace) to indicate when (early vs. late) a target would be most likely to appear. Stimulation site was either the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), right DLPFC, or sham condition. The results showed that frontal TMS produced differential effects as a function of type of cuing. In symbolic cuing, TMS on either left or right frontal sites (vs. sham) increased temporal orienting effects by reducing reaction times in valid trials. In rhythmic cuing, however, frontal TMS did not influence performance. This dissociation between two forms of temporal preparation suggests a specific role for the DLPFC in the ability of temporal orienting, but not in preparation guided by rhythms.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Temporal prediction (TP) is a flexible and dynamic cognitive ability. Depending on the internal or external nature of information exploited to generate TP, distinct cognitive and brain mechanisms are engaged with the same final goal of reducing uncertainty about the future. In this study, we investigated the specific brain mechanisms involved in internally and externally driven TP. To this end, we employed an experimental paradigm purposely designed to elicit and compare externally and internally driven TP and a combined approach based on the application of a distributed source reconstruction modeling on a high spatial resolution electrophysiological data array. Specific spatiotemporal ERP signatures were identified, with significant modulation of contingent negative variation and frontal late sustained positivity in external and internal TP contexts, respectively. These different electrophysiological patterns were supported by the engagement of distinct neural networks, including a left sensorimotor and a prefrontal circuit for externally and internally driven TP, respectively.

Low-frequency rTMS inhibitory effects in the primary motor cortex: Insights from TMS-evoked potentials
Publication year: 2014

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053811914003450
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The neuromodulatory effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) have been mostly investigated by peripheral motor-evoked potentials (MEPs). New TMS-compatible EEG systems allow a direct investigation of the stimulation effects through the analysis of TMS-evoked potentials (TEPs). We investigated the effects of 1-Hz rTMS over the primary motor cortex (M1) of 15 healthy volunteers on TEP evoked by single pulse TMS over the same area. A second experiment in which rTMS was delivered over the primary visual cortex (V1) of 15 healthy volunteers was conducted to examine the spatial specificity of the effects. Single-pulse TMS evoked four main components: P30, N45, P60 and N100. M1-rTMS resulted in a significant decrease of MEP amplitude and in a significant increase of P60 and N100 amplitude. There was no effect after V1-rTMS. 1-Hz rTMS appears to increase the amount of inhibition following a TMS pulse, as demonstrated by the higher N100 and P60, which are thought to originate from GABAb-mediated inhibitory post-synaptic potentials. Our results confirm the reliability of the TMS-evoked N100 as a marker of cortical inhibition and provide insight into the neuromodulatory effects of 1-Hz rTMS. The present finding could be of relevance for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Recent evidence reveals that inter- and intra-individual variability significantly affects cognitive performance in a number of neuropsychological pathologies. We applied a flexible family of statistical models to elucidate the contribution of inter- and intra-individual variables on cognitive functioning in healthy volunteers and patients at risk for hepatic encephalopathy (HE). Sixty-five volunteers (32 patients with cirrhosis and 33 healthy volunteers) were assessed by means of the Inhibitory Control Task (ICT). A Generalized Additive Model for Location, Scale and Shape (GAMLSS) was fitted for jointly modeling the mean and the intra-variability of Reaction Times (RTs) as a function of socio-demographic and task related covariates. Furthermore, a Generalized Linear Mixed Model (GLMM) was fitted for modeling accuracy. When controlling for the covariates, patients without minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) did not differ from patients with MHE in the low-demanding condition, both in terms of RTs and accuracy. Moreover, they showed a significant decline in accuracy compared to the control group. Compared to patients with MHE, patients without MHE showed faster RTs and higher accuracy only in the high-demanding condition. The results revealed that the application of GAMLSS and GLMM models are able to capture subtle cognitive alterations, previously not detected, in patients’ subclinical pathologies.

Differential effects of emotional cues on components of prospective memory: An ERP study
Publication year: 2015
URL:
http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnhum.2015.00010/abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
So far, little is known about the neurocognitive mechanisms associated with emotion effects on prospective memory (PM) performance. Thus, this study aimed at disentangling possible mechanisms for the effects of emotional valence of PM cues on the distinct phases composing PM by investigating event-related potentials (ERPs). Participants were engaged in an ongoing N-back task while being required to perform a PM task. The emotional valence of both the ongoing pictures and the PM cues was manipulated (pleasant, neutral, unpleasant). ERPs were recorded during the PM phases, such as encoding, maintenance, and retrieval of the intention. A recognition task including PM cues and ongoing stimuli was also performed at the end of the sessions. ERP results suggest that emotional PM cues not only trigger an automatic, bottom-up, capture of attention, but also boost a greater allocation of top-down processes. These processes seem to be recruited to hold attention toward the emotional stimuli and to retrieve the intention from memory, likely because of the motivational significance of the emotional stimuli. Moreover, pleasant PM cues seemed to modulate especially the prospective component, as revealed by changes in the amplitude of the ERP correlates of strategic monitoring as a function of the relevance of the valence for the PM task. Unpleasant pictures seemed to modulate especially the retrospective component, as revealed by the largest old/new effect being elicited by unpleasant PM pictures in the recognition task.

Does predictability matter? Effects of cue predictability on neurocognitive mechanisms underlying prospective memory
Publication year: 2015

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4394705/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Prospective memory (PM) represents the ability to successfully realize intentions when the appropriate moment or cue occurs. In this study, we used event-related potentials (ERPs) to explore the impact of cue predictability on the cognitive and neural mechanisms supporting PM. Participants performed an ongoing task and, simultaneously, had to remember to execute a pre-specified action when they encountered the PM cues. The occurrence of the PM cues was predictable (being signaled by a warning cue) for some participants and was completely unpredictable for others. In the predictable cue condition, the behavioral and ERP correlates of strategic monitoring were observed mainly in the ongoing trials wherein the PM cue was expected. In the unpredictable cue condition they were instead shown throughout the whole PM block. This pattern of results suggests that, in the predictable cue condition, participants engaged monitoring only when subjected to a context wherein the PM cue was expected, and disengaged monitoring when the PM cue was not expected. Conversely, participants in the unpredictable cue condition distributed their resources for strategic monitoring in more continuous manner. The findings of this study support the most recent views—the “Dynamic Multiprocess Framework” and the “Attention to Delayed Intention” (AtoDI) model—confirming that strategic monitoring is a flexible mechanism that is recruited mainly when a PM cue is expected and that may interact with bottom-up spontaneous processes.

Neural underpinnings of the “agent brain”: new evidence from transcranial direct current stimulation

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Intentional binding (IB) refers to the temporal compression between a voluntary action and its sensory effect, and it is considered an implicit measure of sense of agency (SoA), that is, the capacity to control one's own actions. IB has been thoroughly studied from a behavioural point of view but only few studies have investigated its neural underpinnings, always using the same two paradigms. Although providing evidence that the supplementary motor complex is involved, findings are still too scarce to draw definitive conclusions. The aim of the present study was to establish a causal relationship between the pre-supplementary motor area (pre-SMA), known for its key role in action planning and initiation, and IB by means of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Participants underwent anodal, cathodal and sham control stimulations during three separate sessions (Experiment I). Subsequently, they underwent the same stimulation protocol (Experiment II) using as control a region potentially involved in the processing of the sensory effects of voluntary action (i.e., the right primary auditory cortex for the auditory effects of action). A significant reduction in IB was found only after stimulation of the pre-SMA, which supports the causal contribution of this prefrontal area in the perceived linkage between action and its effects. As SoA could be disrupted in many psychiatric and neurological diseases, these results have direct clinical relevance as tDCS could be successfully used in this domain in virtue of the promising advantages it offers for rehabilitation.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Neural bases of prospective memory: A meta-analysis and the “Attention to Delayed Intention” (AtoDI) model
Publication year: 2015

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0149763415000524
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Remembering to realize delayed intentions is a multi-phase process, labelled as prospective memory (PM), and involves a plurality of neural networks. The present study utilized the activation likelihood estimation method of meta-analysis to provide a complete overview of the brain regions that are consistently activated in each PM phase. We formulated the ‘Attention to Delayed Intention’ (AtoDI) model to explain the neural dissociation found between intention maintenance and retrieval phases. The dorsal frontoparietal network is involved mainly in the maintenance phase and seems to mediate the strategic monitoring processes, such as the allocation of top-down attention both towards external stimuli, to monitor for the occurrence of the PM cues, and to internal memory contents, to maintain the intention active in memory. The ventral frontoparietal network is recruited in the retrieval phase and might subserve the bottom-up attention captured externally by the PM cues and, internally, by the intention stored in memory. Together with other brain regions (i.e., insula and posterior cingulate cortex), the ventral frontoparietal network would support the spontaneous retrieval processes. The functional contribution of the anterior prefrontal cortex is discussed extensively for each PM phase.

TMS on prefrontal cortex influences temporal orienting but not preparation guided by rhythms
Publication year: 2014
URL:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1877042814018588
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A neuropsychological study suggested a role for the right prefrontal cortex in temporal orienting of attention and the left prefrontal cortex in preparation guided by rhythms (Trivińo et al., 2011). We tested this hypothesis by comparing the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on the performances of two temporal preparation tasks, one using symbolic cues (short vs. long lines) and the other using regular rhythms (with fast vs. slow pace) to indicate when a target was most likely to appear. Stimulation site was either the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (l-DLPFC), right DLPFC, or sham condition. The results showed that frontal TMS produced differential effects as a function of type of cuing. In symbolic cuing, TMS on either left or right frontal sites (vs. sham) increased validity effects by reducing reaction times in valid trials. In rhythmic cuing, however, frontal TMS did not influence performance. These findings: 1) dissociated between temporal preparation guided by cues vs. rhythms, 2) suggest a role of bilateral DLPFC (and inhibitory processes) in the ability for temporal orienting, and 3) confirmed the automatic nature of temporal regularity, which is more robust to interference than temporal orienting.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Remembering to realize delayed intentions is a multi-phase process, labelled as Prospective Memory (PM), and involves a plurality of neural networks. The present study utilized the activation likelihood estimation method of meta-analysis to provide a complete overview of the brain regions that are consistently activated in the different PM phases. We extended previous models, formulating the ‘Attention to Delayed Intention’ (AtoDI) hypothesis, to explain the neural dissociation found between maintenance and retrieval of intentions. The dorsal frontoparietal network is involved mainly in the maintenance phase and mediates the allocation of top-down attention toward both external stimuli and internal memory contents. These top-down processes are indeed required to monitor for the occurrence of the PM cues and to maintain the intention active in memory. The ventral frontoparietal network is recruited in the retrieval phase and subserves the bottom-up attention captured externally by the PM cues and, internally, by the intention stored in memory. The ‘AtoDI’ hypothesis also provided an explanation of the functional contribution of the anterior prefrontal cortex, the cingulate cortices and the insula since these regions play a crucial role in PM as well.

How does cue predictability influence prospective memory? An fMRI study
Publication year: 2014
URL:
http://www.prospectivememory.org/2014/index.php/icpm/4/paper/view/151
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The study was aimed at investigating the neural correlates of cue predictability in prospective memory. To this end, two functional magnetic resonance (fMRI) experiments were performed, either in an event-based and in a time-based context. The results revealed that in the event-based task strategic monitoring was principally involved in predictable blocks, where the cue was not expected, and it was associated with a deactivation of the rostral prefrontal cortex. On the other hand, the superior parietal lobe was maximally active in blocks where the cue was expected. In the time-based task, the activation in the blocks where the cue was not expected was higher in the anterior cingulated cortex and superior frontal gyrus, while the caudate nucleus was active during the block requiring the monitoring of time, therefore likely reflected time processing processes. These results suggest that PM cue predictability influences monitoring processes and that neural correlates of strategic monitoring, but not maintaining processes, were task-specific.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
TMS-EEG represent one of the most promising methods in the investigation of the brain dynamics. However, during EEG, the discharge of TMS may generate a decay artifact that can last for tens of milliseconds. Such artifact represents a problem for the analysis of the TMS-evoked potentials (TEPs). So far, two main strategies of correction have been proposed involving the use of a linear detrend or independent component analysis (ICA). However, none of these solutions may be considered optimal: firstly, because in most of the cases the decay artifact shows a non-linear trend; secondly, because the ICA correction (1) might be influenced by individual researcher’s choices and (2) might cause the removal of physiological responses. Our aim is to verify the feasibility of a new adaptive detrend by comparing it with the ICA correction. Thirty-six healthy volunteers were stimulated with 50 TMS pulses over the left M1. The peak-to-peak amplitude and the morphology of the TEPs were compared among three conditions: RAW (no correction of the decay artifact was applied); ICA (the decay components were extracted and removed by ICA); ALG (the decay artifact was corrected through the use of an adaptive algorithm). To assess whether the artifact correction significantly affected also the physiological responses to TMS, we examined the differences in the -100 +400 ms time window after the TMS pulse, across the three conditions, by means of a non-parametric, cluster-based, permutation statistical test. Then, we compared the peak-to-peak TEPs amplitude within the detected time windows. The grand-averaged EEG response revealed 5 main peaks: P30, N45, P60, N100 and P180. Significant differences (i.e. Monte Carlo p-values < 0.05) among the three conditions were detected in a cluster nearby the TMS coil, and specifically over FC1 (all the components); CP1 (P30/N45 and N45/P60) and FC2 (N45/P60 and P60/N100). Repeated-measures ANOVA revealed a higher peak-to-peak amplitude in 5 of the 8 TEPs after ICA correction, compared to the RAW and ALG conditions. Our results showed that the ICA correction significantly affected the amplitude and the morphology of most of the analyzed TEPs. On the other hand, when our algorithm was used, the amplitude and the morphology of the peaks did not differ from the original signal (i.e. RAW condition). The present results showed that our adaptive detrend is a reliable solution for the correction of the TMS-evoked decay artefact, especially considering that, contrary to ICA, (1) it is not dependent from the number of recording channels, (2) it does not affect the physiological responses and (3) it is completely independent from the experimenter’s choices.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous research highlighted the importance of automatic and unconscious inhibitory processes involved in voluntary action by using a visuo-motor subliminal masked prime task. In this task, invisible masked arrows stimuli are followed by visible arrow targets for a left or right hand response at different interstimuli intervals (ISI), producing a traditional facilitation effect at short ISIs (0-80ms) and a reversal inhibitory effect at long ISIs (100-250ms). In this study we used transcranial alternate current stimulation (tACS) to interact non-invasively with the ongoing task-related oscillatory activity.

Title:
Effects of 10Hz and 20Hz transcranial alternating current stimulation on automatic motor control
Publication year: 2016
URL:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1935861X1600005X
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
In a masked prime choice reaction task, presentation of a compatible prime increases the reaction time to the following imperative stimulus if the interval between mask and prime is around 80–250?ms. This is thought to be due to automatic suppression of the motor plan evoked by the prime, which delays reaction to the imperative stimulus. Oscillatory activity in motor networks around the beta frequency range of 20?Hz is important in suppression of movement. Transcranial alternating current at 20?Hz may be able to drive oscillations in the beta range.
OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS
To investigate whether transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) at 20?Hz would increase automatic inhibition in a masked prime task. As a control we used 10?Hz tACS.
METHODS
Stimulation was delivered at alpha (10?Hz) and beta (20?Hz) frequency over the supplementary motor area and the primary motor cortex (simultaneous tACS of SMA-M1), which are part of the BG-cortical motor loop, during the execution of the subliminal masked prime left/right choice reaction task. We measured the effects on reaction times. Corticospinal excitability was assessed by measuring the amplitude of motor evoked potentials (MEPs) evoked in the first dorsal interosseous muscle by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) over M1.
RESULTS
The 10 and 20-Hz tACS over SMA-M1 had different effects on automatic inhibition. The 20?Hz tACS increased the duration of automatic inhibition whereas it was decreased by 10?Hz tACS. Neurophysiologically, 20?Hz tACS reduced the amplitude of MEPs evoked from M1, whereas there was no change after 10?Hz tACS.
CONCLUSION
Automatic mechanisms of motor inhibition can be modulated by tACS over motor areas of cortex. tACS may be a useful additional tool to investigate the causal links between endogenous brain oscillations and specific cognitive processes.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
There is growing interest in understanding cognitive mechanisms and neural bases of our sense of time. Despite the large amount of evidence, nevertheless, a number of open questions remains about the mechanisms by which our brain measures time.
AIM
The present project aimed at identifying whether there is a core mechanism for timing processes. Specifically, we investigated which brain areas subserve such mechanism, and their functional role.
METHODS
1. High-density EEG study
2. rTMS study
3. EEG-TMS study
4. Clinical studies
RESULTS
High-density EEG study - Brain source analysis of S1- and ISI-related ERP activity revealed activation of sensorial cortical areas and the supplementary motor area (SMA), respectively. We suggest that this area is the major cortical generator of the temporal CNV reflecting an automatic, action-independent mechanism underlying temporal expectancy.
rTMS study - The results showed that frontal TMS produced differential effects as a function of type of cuing. In symbolic cuing, TMS on either left or right frontal site (vs. sham) increased temporal orienting effects by reducing reaction times invalid trials. In rhythmic cuing, however, frontal TMS did not influence performance.
EEG-TMS study - Our results confirmed the reliability of the TMS-evoked N100 as a marker of cortical inhibition and provide insight into the neuromodulatory effects of 1-Hz rTMS.
Clinical studies - On-line comparison process between the two time intervals, re?ected by the P1-P2 and LPCt amplitude and morphology, was impaired in patients with Parkinson’s disease and support the presence of a de?cit of memory for time in such clinical population.
CONCLUSIONS
Specific ERP components were shown to index processing of short interval durations. Our findings support the involvement of contingent negative variation (CNV) observed in frontal regions in time processing. Remarkably, the neural generators of the temporal CNV

Title:

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous studies have shown the presence of an interference effect on temporal perception when participants are required to simultaneously execute a nontemporal task. Such interference likely has an attentional source. In the present work, a temporal discrimination task was performed alone or together with a self-paced finger-tapping task used as concurrent, nontemporal task. Temporal durations were presented in either the visual or the auditory modality, and two standard durations (500 and 1,500 ms) were used. For each experimental condition, the participant’s threshold was estimated and analyzed. The mean Weber fraction was higher in the visual than in the auditory modality, but only for the subsecond duration, and it was higher with the 500-ms than with the 1,500-ms standard duration. Interestingly, the Weber fraction was significantly higher in the dual-task condition, but only in the visual modality. The results suggest that the processing of time in the auditory modality is likely automatic, but not in the visual modality.

BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Title:
Value and efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation in the cognitive rehabilitation: A critical review since 2000
Publication year: 2016

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, including transcranial direct current stimulation (t-DCS) have been used in the rehabilitation of cognitive function in a spectrum of neurological disorders. The present review outlines methodological communalities and differences of t-DCS procedures in neurocognitive rehabilitation. We consider the efficacy of tDCS for the management of specific cognitive deficits in four main neurological disorders by providing a critical analysis of recent studies that have used t-DCS to improve cognition in patients with Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, Hemi-spatial Neglect, and Aphasia. The evidence from this innovative approach to cognitive rehabilitation suggests that tDCS can influence cognition. However, the results show a high variability between studies both in terms of the methodological approach adopted and the cognitive functions targeted. The review also focuses both on methodological issues such as technical aspects of the stimulation (electrode position and dimension; current intensity; duration of protocol) and on the inclusion of appropriate assessment tools for cognition. A further aspect considered is the optimal timing for administration of tDCS: before, during or after cognitive rehabilitation. We conclude that more studies using common methodology are needed to gain a better understanding of the efficacy of tDCS as a new tool for rehabilitation of cognitive disorders in a range of neurological disorders.
