Abstract

Electrical stimulation methods have been used in numerous studies to treat a variety of neurologic disabilities. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) may lead to several different complications, many of which can be treated with electrical stimulation. Only recently, the focus of researchers has shifted more towards preclinical studies to be able to investigate the underlying mechanisms of how these stimulation methods affect nervous tissue in greater detail. This article will give an overview of the most prominent electrical stimulation modalities, namely transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), deep brain stimulation (DBS) and vagus nerve stimulation (VNS). Some preclinical studies will be highlighted to show the diverse range of possible applications of electrical stimulation for the treatmentof TBI sequelae.
