Flexibly learning and adapting to external environments is integral to cognitive flexibility. This includes scenarios requiring the capability to withhold our actions. In this study, we used transcranial random stimulation, a form of non-invasive brain stimulation and showed improvement in inhibition-related behaviours and associated neural activity in terms of spectral power and intermittent bursts.

The top row shows the sequence of events in a session with stimulation electrodes (at Fz and Pz) and the bottom row shows the task with Go (blue)/Conflict (red) and NoGo (black) components and feedback to the response. The violin plot shows the accuracy related to NoGo trials (inhibitory control) for transcranial random noise stimulation (TRNS) and sham conditions.)
