Electrical Stimulation Modulates High γ Activity and Human Memory Performance

PMCID: 5797477
PMID: 29404403
DOI: 10.1523/ENEURO.0369-17.2018

[…] eeding safe charge density limits as referenced. We completely agree with the safety concerns for the future studies and have now added a new statement in the fifth paragraph of Materials and Methods:âSafe amplitude for stimulation was determined at the start of each session using a mapping procedure in which stimulation was applied at 0.5 mA while a neurologist monitored for after-discharges. Thi […]
