High-Definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) of the Parietal Cortex in Anorexia Nervosa: A Pilot, Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT)
About this study
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.
- Right-handed; and
- Have a current diagnosis of anorexia nervosa
We will also ask you to participate in 2 additional sessions at 4 and 12 weeks following your last session. These sessions will take less than 3 hours each and will just involve the clinical and cognitive tasks (no brain stimulation or MRI). You will receive a total of $300 for your participation.
