Noninvasive Brain Stimulation Suggests Better Appetite Control in Pilot Study

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) — a non-invasive brain stimulation technique — altered brainwave patterns in people with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) in ways consistent with suppressing impulses in response to food, a pilot study in patients reported. These findings support the use of tDCS to ease the excessive appetite associated with the condition.  The study, “Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) on Go/NoGo Performance Using Food and Non-Food Stimuli in Patients with Prader–Willi Syndrome,”…
