Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a form of non-invase neurostimulation that delivers a constant low level current to the brain through the use of electrodes placed on the scalp. This neuromodulation technique uses a steady current between 1 - 2 mA delivered through electrodes to targeted regions of the brain to modulate brain function. Using different electrode configurations, tDCS can be used to either excite or inhibit neuronal activity in the targeted region.
Headquartered in New York City, Caputron is the leading worldwide distributor of home, clinical and research neurostimulation technology, such as tDCS, TMS, CES and EEG. By partnering with world-class device manufacturers, we supply a range of excellent neurostimulation devices and accessories, such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS).
The Caputron High Precision Direct Current Source provides the best combination of accurate current control with sub mA resolution in an economical and simple to use package. Current is controlled manually using a simple knob using the build-in high-percision meter. Note: if a ramp is required this will need to be generated manually. The device makes it convenient to adjust current “on the fly” during stimulation. During stimulation the meter can be turned off for ultra-low noise Direct Current. Designed for application where precise current controlled is needed including animal experiments of direct current stimulation. The device is designed only for bench-top or veterinary use.

The electrodes that come with this device are amazing and were very easy to attach to the rodent.
We use this in our lab for animal stimulation. The current output is incredibly precise.
Got a pair for our studies. Current is precise and has continous impedance monitoring.
