What is Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (TACS)? It is a form of electrical stimulation that uses two electrodes (a positive electrode called an anode and a negative electrode, the cathode) to pass current back and forth through either the brain or the body. This form of neurotherapy allows for customized ways to aid our clients’ brain and body function. It is called alternating current because the side which is giving and receiving electrons (anode and cathode) continuously switches.
Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation allows us to choose the exact rhythm of stimulation we apply. Not only is the frequency specifically targeted; the location is also precisely chosen. Based on the QEEG brain map we place electrodes on the sites that are deficient in the frequency being applied.
