Non-invasive Brain Stimulation in Autistic Spectrum Disorders.

Non-invasive Brain Stimulation in Autistic Spectrum Disorders.

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of neurodevelopmental conditions that are characterized by social, communicative, and behavioural impairments. Although the neurobiological basis of ASD is becoming clearer, there are currently no validated biomedical treatments targeting the core symptoms. Recent developments in non-invasive brain stimulation, however, have provided important insights into possible underlying neural mechanisms and the development of potential new treatments. Our current research, which involves repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), indicates that non-invasive brain stimulation in ASD can lead to significant improvements in both neurophysiological indicators and clinical presentation. This research enhances our neurobiological understanding of ASD and is a promising development in the search for new therapeutic interventions for these conditions.
