Abstract:  Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is selecting the patient dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) as a stimulating area, by adjusting the cortical excitability, alleviate ADHD symptoms and improve impaired cognitive functions. In view of the problem of tDCS in ADHD treatment, the future from effectiveness, determine the optimal stimulation parameters, individual differences, different subtypes and in combination with other therapies using these five aspects to further study.

Key words: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, transcranial direct current stimulation, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex
