Montage: Improved Insightfulness

Anode: T4

Cathode: T3

Intensity: 1.6 mA

Duration: 10 min


  • Right lateralized tDCS at a max current output 1.6 mA was found to increase the user’s ability to solve difficult problems; suggesting this montage may have played a role in mitigating cognitive biases that impede higher creative thinking. 40% of participants were able to find the solution to a difficult problem after receiving right lateralized tDCS, whereas none of the participants were able to solve it beforehand.
  • The general understanding so far for this montage is that mental templates and/or cognitive biases may be weakened which is associated with users increasing their insightfulness and ability to find novel meaning in a given set of information.
