The short answer is no, while TDCS does help to restore executive functioning,
that particlar electrode placement is not excusive to that function, applications to
the prefontal cortex F3 ( left) F4 Right is also used to treat emotional pain as
well as physical pain. There are several protocols used in TDCS. It is rare for any
one individual to respond to all protocals. In fact you may not be a responder at
all. You may only respond to one or two protocols as well.
TDCS is not a one size fits all, each TDCS's users body is different and because
they are different there are varying experiences depending upon what protocol
a response is had. Likewise the time line or length of time involved before one
does experience a benefit varies with each individual. It is time consuming but
only in reading through the entire thread can you gain insights. Just read a little
at a time. Hope this helps. Blessings
