Interhemispheric interaction has a major role in various neurobehavioral functions. Its disruption is a major contributor to the pathological changes in the setting of brain injury such as traumatic brain injury, peripheral nerve injury, and stroke, as well as neurodegenerative diseases. Shin and Pelled provide a review (yielding approximately 170 relevant articles) of noninvasive and state-of-the-art molecular based neuromodulation methods that focus on or have the potential to elucidate interhemispheric interaction.

CIAM Editor’s note: Although this review focuses on transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (TDS) rather than transcutaneous auricular stimulation, this review is relevant to the CIAM compilation of research in Body of Research as it supports the important Auricular Medicine concept of laterality.
