Inhibitory control is an important part of executive function. Studies have showed that inhibitory control is in connection with activities in the frontal lobe region. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a kind of non-invasive brain stimulation that can regulate activation intensity of the brain region. Studies have shown that tDCS on partial region of the frontal lobe can effectively interfere with the level of inhibitory control of the participants, and this intervention can be affected by changes in such conditions as location and type of the stimulation, and experimental tasks. At present, tDCS has been applied to the studies on inhibitory control of different populations, and can be better combined with other research techniques.

Key words: inhibitory control, response inhibition, tDCS, IFG, dlPFC, pre-SMA
