I am way more skeptical of tdcs than the average tdcs hobbyist because I
basically do data analysis and modeling and almost no practical
applications, so I am trained to be overly critical and believe nothing.

That said, you should probably make some notes about task structure and
timing, stimulation time, current direction, and the location and size of
both anode and cathode.

John is pretty good at being skeptical of the literature though, so I
expect he will have things to add or leave out per task. Those are the
basics I would want to see from a rough science perspective though.
