High-Definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) of the Parietal Cortex in Anorexia Nervosa: A Pilot, Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT)
Participants are sought for a treatment trial assessing the effectiveness of non-invasive brain stimulation for people with anorexia nervosa.
The purpose of this study is to see whether a type of brain stimulation, called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), helps improve symptoms in people with anorexia nervosa.
tDCS involves a low electrical current being administered to your scalp. This is a very common technique that is used for improving symptoms in various conditions, as well as enhancing performance on certain tasks in healthy people.
To be eligible to participate in this study, you must be:
- Right-handed; and
- Have a current diagnosis of anorexia nervosa
The trial will involve 10 days of tDCS treatment over two weeks, with assessments at different time-points.
Participants will be reimbursed with a total of $300.
