Available evidence indicates that left parietal theta activity plays a causal role for intelligence (Jaušovec et al., 2014; Jaušovec & Jaušovec, 2014; Pahor & Jaušovec, 2014). This double-blind, sham-controlled tACS-study hence examined left-parietal theta stimulation effects on intelligence and on brain activation as measured by fMRI. Moreover, th...
