Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and electroencephalography (EEG) are integrated, including re-using electrodes to perform both tDCS and EEG, and automatically alternating EEG collection and tDCS application. EEG and tDCS functionalities are integrated into a single headset. Improvements in tDCS include realizing multiple tDCS current flow configurations without repositioning electrodes, and concurrently applying multiple independent tDCS currents to a subject.
