The 20 minutes of 1.5 mA cathodal tDCS targeted the primary motor cortex of the nonlesioned hemisphere (Soterix 1x1 Limited Total Energy (LTE), New York, NY).
Pope and Miall [20] hypothesized that cathodal c-tDCS over the right cerebellum lobule VII would reduce the inhibitory tone exerted by the Purkinje cells over prefrontal regions, causing disinhibition of the contralateral prefrontal regions.

In cases of high concentrations of free Hb, two additional minor bands were detected in a more cathodal position (Fig.
In general, anodal tDCS of long duration (i.e., up to 13 minutes) induces facilitatory effects of motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) [2, 3, 5], whilst cathodal tDCS leads to inhibitory effects [1, 6-9].
The search for a defect common to these and other proteins finally pointed to the glycan moiety because sialic acid deficiency of serum transferrin (Tf) was strongly suggested by cathodal shift of the sialotransferrins on isoelectric focusing (IEF) (5).
[8] has demonstrated that cathodal transcranial DCS of the cerebellum decreases cerebellum to motor cortex inhibition, in contrast with anodal transcranial DCS.
Therefore, methylation of the promoter is a relatively uncommon mechanism for the frequent increase of cathodal LD isoenzymes in gastric and colorectal cancer patients.
Electrode position is crucial to modulate the distribution and direction of the current flow: anodal stimulation has an excitatory effect by cortical neuron depolarization, while cathodal tDCS hyperpolarizes neurons by decreasing cortical excitability.
Results of algorithms calculating peak absorbance (PA), PA minus nearest cathodal valley absorbance (PA-VA), baseline area under the curve (AU[]), and valley-to-valley integrated areas under the curve (AU[C.sub.v-v]), addressing the position of each specific protein, were compared with results of immunonephelometric analyses of the respective protein by linear regression analysis.
