Abstract

In this study we employed a novel EEG/ERP analysis tool known as Brain Network Activation (BNA) to assess the reorganization of brain dynamics following focal tDCS stimulation in fibromyalgia patients. BNA is an integral treatment progression monitoring system based on the high temporal resolution of ERPs, and by using a formal graph representation depicts the evolving network dynamics in time, location and frequency in high temporal resolution. We examined whether the BNA score, a measure reflecting the network-level synchronization, could serve as a predictor of responsiveness and the length of treatment.
