Home-based TDCS for cognitive and behavioral symptoms in Huntington's disease: a pilot feasibility and mechanistic study
Cognitive and emotional symptoms of HD, such as difficulty planning, depression, and anxiety, pose a significant burden on people with HD, and many treatments come with troubling side effects. Dr. Macedo e Cordeiro will work with mentors Antonio Teixeira, MD, PhD, and Erin Furr-Stimming, MD, to test a noninvasive brain stimulation method in an attempt to influence emotional symptoms and cognitive abilities in HD patients.
