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 brain is a highly energy sensitive system, which is why inactive processes can be activated by low-intensity stimulation.

The ear lobe connectors are not comfy nor effective. I use the sponges from my braindriver with it and I find it is ok. I do feel some effect but dont know what the best procedure is really, like how long is safe because it can go up to 180 mins. Wished there was a backup light on screen. more importantly wish there was an auto shut off for the price. Dont know yet if I find it more sucessful than tdcs (the braindriver for instance), or maybe i am not using it right. Will use for longer and update review
BENEFITS: If you are wondering how exactly this device would help you, this is how it does it: it improves your ability to switch off parts of your brain. For more details read the paper "Effects of cranial electrotherapy stimulation on resting state brain activity" by Feusner, Jamie D., et al. One way to see why anxiety and depression occurs is because the person is not able to quit negative thoughts. This device naturally *improves your ability to choose to quit negative thinking*. That's exactly how it also helps you fall asleep. So, obviously you need to work with the device and exercise the choice to quit negative thinking/overthinking as often as possible to reap the full benefits.
CONS & QUICK FIXES:
1. LOW BATTERY LIFE: Many of the reviews talk about its poor battery life - which is a real problem. Single use 9V batteries aren't cheap at all! As soon as I received the device I was using it 1 hour+ each day. By the third day low battery alert start going off. The quick fix is to just buy rechargeable 9V batteries. I purchased the EBL rechargeable 9V batteries with the charger from Amazon and they work great!
2. SKIN IRRITATION: Many reviewers also complain of skin irritation. The common response from caputron is to say that you just get used to it and hurts less with more use. I have a better fix for it: caputron also provides earclip electrodes with the device. Use them after applying some electrode gel to your earlobes. I use Spectra 360 electrode gel which is available from both caputron and Amazon. It's cheap and almost completely eliminates any skin irritation.
Thank you so much for this wonderful device.
I like the device and think it has had a positive impact on my sleep, but it sucks the life out of batteries super quickly... Would be better if it had a rechargeable battery or a better automatic shutoff. Make sure you buy a lot of batteries to have on stock!
Not sure why i wouldwant to electrify my brain but the research wasthere. I did feel soemthing but I ended up returning it.
