Over the past decades, the introduction and development of brain stimulation techniques has provided researchers and clinicians a valuable means to modulate activity of brain areas in humans, thereby contribute to the exploration of brain-behavior relations, and develop treatment for various neurological and psychiatric disorders. Brain stimulation has been shown to not only alter neural activity during application, but can also induce long-lasting alternations of cortical excitability and activity. The stimulation current required to modulate cortical excitability can be delivered via invasive (deep brain stimulation (DBS), subdural or epidural cortical stimulation) and noninvasive (transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (TES)) methods, depending upon whether surgical procedure is required. However, despite the growing attention it has received and its increased applications, uncertainty remains regarding the brain area affected and relevant cellular mechanisms. To achieve optimal stimulation parameters and a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of brain stimulation, a host of studies has applied computational modeling approaches and reported the spatial distribution of electric field or current density with anatomical considerations using a head model derived from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to interpolate cellular targets with simulated electric field.
