Over the past several decades, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) gained a renewed interest as a non-invasive brain stimulation method in health and disease. The therapeutic potential of tDCS is appealing to a wide range of patient populations as it provides a non-pharmacological approach with slight to no side effects, is inexpensive, and is easy to use even at home by patients—under supervision—with the potential of producing long after-effects when a suitable protocol is used.
This Special Issue of Brain Sciences aims to present a collection of studies detailing the most recent advancements in the application of tDCS in neurological diseases. Authors are invited to submit cutting-edge research and reviews that address a broad range of topics related to the application of tDCS in patients with neurological diseases, including the following: the mechanism of action, how to choose the best tDCS parameters for different patient populations, the recommended dosage, new advances in targeting different areas in the brain, including deep areas in the brain, safety, using an augmentative treatment technique, targeting one area in the brain vs. several areas at the same time, and future perspectives in this field.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Brain Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
