Objective: The primary aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the effects of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (a-tDCS) on sensory (STh) and pain thresholds (PTh) in healthy individuals and pain levels (PL) in patients with chronic pain. Methods: Electronic databases were searched for a-tDCS studies. Methodological quality was examined using the PEDro and Downs and Black (D B) assessment tools. Results: a-tDCS of the primary motor cortex (M1) increases both STh (P
