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).
Improve your memory, focus and creativity. The PlatoWork headset is a plug’n play device designed to make neurostimulation as easy as possible. Simply put on the PlatoWork headset, select stimulation mode in the app and start working. By increasing activity in specific areas of the brain, PlatoWork allows you to enter the mindset you need to solve a task. Try PlatoWork today.
PlatoWork can get you into work mode on days, where your brain just wont collaborate. Or increase your state of flow, when you're already on track with a task. Whether you need to study for an exam, block out distractions to meet a deadline, or come up with creative solutions to a problem, PlatoWork can help you get there. In the app, you can choose between four different modes, to accelerate different types of cognitive functions:
When you acquire new knowledge, your brain relies on the prefrontal cortex to process the information. The prefrontal cortex is responsible for higher cognitive processes including working memory, which is essential for learning. Analysis of tDCS studies have shown that the method improves learning and that new skills can be acquired faster with the use of neurostimulation.
The right prefrontal cortex is an area associated with higher cognitive processes such as non-verbal association. This mode stimulates the right frontal lobe of the brain. Use this mode when you are generating new ideas or other brainstorming related tasks.
To concentrate or focus your attention on a task you need better attentional control. With the Concentrate mode, you target the prefrontal cortex to boost concentration and minimize impulses from reward-seeking regions of the brain, while minimizing mind-wandering through inhibition of activity in the precuneus.
When you need to get new ideas you need to rethink what you already know. The Rethink mode does this by boosting activity in the precuneus, the hub of your creative brain. It also inhibits the prefrontal cortex – the control centre of your brain – thereby increasing incoming thoughts, thoughts that may evolve into great ideas.
Put on the PlatoWork headset, use the app to select which mode you need, and for the next 30 minutes the headset will stimulate the relevant regions of your brain, while you continue working.

There is a great flexibility of possible stimulation sites, which means that different brain regions can be targeted. At PlatoScience we focus on the areas of the brain that you use when you think. To target the right brain region you need to know which skill you need to enhance. Using PlatoScience neurostimulation ensures that you target the right region depending on the stimulation mode you choose.
The effect of tDCS depends on functional tasks, and it only works if stimulation is combined with a functional target. So it is important that you combine a task relevant with your choice of stimulation. At PlatoScience we do our best to guide you to what tasks fit the different stimulation modes.
It takes time for your neurons to respond to the effects of stimulation. The effects appear during stimulation and will last for approximately an hour, maybe more. To achieve the optimal effect of neurostimulation, you must work with your brain in the time after stimulation, where your neurons will fire in their normal pace again. But because of neuroplasticity the effect will last.
