- Enhancement of pinch force in the lower leg by anodal transcranial direct current stimulationSatoshi Tanaka
ERATO Shimojo Implicit Brain Function Project, Japan Science and Technology Agency, Atsugi, Kanagawa, 243 0198, Japan
Exp Brain Res 196:459-65. 2009..These results indicate that motor performance of not only the hands but also the legs can be enhanced by anodal tDCS. tDCS may be applicable to the neuro-rehabilitation of patients with leg motor disability...
- Social rewards enhance offline improvements in motor skillSho K Sugawara
Division of Cerebral Integration, National Institute for Physiological Sciences, Okazaki, Aichi, Japan
PLoS ONE 7:e48174. 2012..These results are the first to indicate that praise-related improvements in motor skill memory are not due to a feedback-incentive mechanism, but instead involve direct effects on the offline consolidation process...
- Cross-modal integration during vowel identification in audiovisual speech: a functional magnetic resonance imaging studyMika Murase
Department of Physiological Sciences, The Graduate University for Advanced Studies Sokendai, Kanagawa, Japan
Neurosci Lett 434:71-6. 2008..These findings suggest that the mid superior temporal sulcus plays an important role in the auditory-visual integration process underlying vowel identification...
- A rat model for measuring the effectiveness of transcranial direct current stimulation using fMRIYuji Takano
NTT Communication Science Laboratories, 3 1, Morinosato Wakamiya, Atsugi shi, Kanagawa Pref, 243 0198, Japan
Neurosci Lett 491:40-3. 2011..This suggests anodal tDCS over the frontal cortex induces neuronal activation in the frontal cortex and in its connected brain region...
