Özet

Objectives: Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive and safe method tried in drug resistant epilepsies, in recent years. Our aim was to evaluate the effect of tDCS in patients diagnosed with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS) which is a well-known drug resistant focal epilepsy syndrome.
