Modulation of brain-lung interactions using HD-tDCS: Mechanisms, clinical practice, and recent advances

      The pathophysiology of the brain-lung interactions are complex and involve inflammation, neurodegeneration and disruptions into the respiratory control system. Recently, it has been suggested that noninvasive brain stimulation could be a valuable tool for the management of the early and post acute phase of patients with respiratory dysfunction. In this session, we will provide data that supports the use of HD-tDCS as an useful therapeutic approach for modulating the respiratory function at the neurophysiological and clinical levels.
