英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Background and objective(#br)Fatigue is a frequent and debilitating symptom in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Its classical treatments are still faced with limited benefits and numerous side effects. Hence, we aimed to evaluate the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a noninvasive brain stimulation technique, on such a challenging symptom. Our secondary outcomes included the assessment of tDCS impact on mood and attentional performance.(#br)Methods(#br)Ten fatigued MS patients were enrolled in a double-blind, sham-controlled, and cross-over study. Each patient randomly received three anodal tDCS blocks: active stimulation over the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), active stimulation over the right posterior parietal cortex (PPC), and...
