Abstract: In this experiment we sought to provide evidence for the causal role of the PFC using tDCS. We hypothesized that by stimulating the DLPFC we would see an increase in FOK ratings. Our results, however, were opposite to what we hypothesized, i.e. FOK rating was higher in the sham condition than in the active stimulation for correct responses only.
