Explore the fundamentals of transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) with our comprehensive online course. Designed for professionals eager to apply tDCS in clinical or research environments, this self-paced program offers in-depth insights and practical demonstrations.



This course provides a solid foundation in tDCS theory and practice and is an essential foundational course before considering using tDCS in your own practice setting or lab.

The lessons cover:

  • Electrotechnical and neurophysiological background of tDCS
  • Safety, regulatory compliance, and application guidelines
  • tDCS as a therapeutic tool in adults and children
  • Variability in the response to tDCS

These lessons are followed by practical demonstration videos.

Expected Time Commitment: 4 hours

Registration is valid for 6 months.  Access to the course is only open to healthcare professionals.
