[New neurostimulation techniques in adicctions].

[Article in Spanish]


Addiction is associated with changes in brain activation patterns. In recent years new techniques of neurostimulation that can alter the activity of brain circuits have been developed, and are being explored in the treatment of addictions. The most important of these techniques are Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Transcranial Direct Electrical Stimulation (tDCS), Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). The findings reported are clearly still insufficient for them to be considered as therapeutic alternatives in substance use disorders.
