Abstract

This work aimed to estimate the distribution of the electric field and current density generated by cerebellar tDCS using electromagnetics computational techniques applied to a realistic human models of different ages and gender. Results show that the stronger electric field and current density occur mainly in the cerebellar cortex, with a spread toward the occipital region of the cortex, while the current spread to other structures is negligible. Moreover, changes of about 1 cm in the position of the scalp electrode delivering tDCS did not influence the E and J distribution in the cerebellum.
