Electrical stimulation is not a novel therapy; it has been used for ages to cure ailments. Animal electricity was the first source of electrical stimulation. Nile catfish have electrical properties, although it is unknown if (or how) ancient Egyptians used them for medical purposes. Plato and Aristotle discussed the power of the torpedo fish to generate healing effects through its electric discharges.
Scribonius Largus (the physician of Tiberius Claudius Nero Caesar) suggested placing a live torpedo fish on the surface of the scalp to cure a patient’s headache. Anthero, a freed slave of Tiberius Caesar, experienced gutta (probably gout). In the later part of the eleventh century, Ibn-Sidah, a Muslim doctor from Persia, proposed using live torpedo fish to cure epilepsy.
Unlike fish electricity and electrostatic current, DC is a steady flow of electrical charge. These devices progressed from simple galvanic batteries in the 18th and 19th centuries, to vacuum tubes and transistors in the 20th century, and finally to microprocessors and microcontrollers. Priori and his colleagues studied the effects of DC on cerebral cortex excitability using Transcranial magnetic stimulation in 1998 when the use of DC was promoted and the contemporary tDCS was born.
In their search to subjectively probe cortical characterizations of sensorimotor and cognitive functions and improve neurological functions in healthy humans, clinical neurologists, basic neuroscientists, and psychiatrists are turning to tDCS as a reliable alternative. It is important that the scientific community disseminate its discoveries to the public and media, as some regard tDCS as a ‘miracle technology.
