Abstract

Cortex neuromodulation is promising approach for treatment of some neurological condi-
tions, especially neuropathic pain and Parkinson's disease. Effects of non-invasive cortical
stimulation are short lived; transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial
alternating current stimulation (tACS) may be useful to assess the suitability for invasive
cortical stimulation. Direct cortical stimulation (DCS) is the method able to provide longlasting effects in treatment of neuropathic pain and some symptoms of Parkinson's disease through the use of totally implantable systems that ensure a chronic stimulation.
