Using a Realistic Human Head model to simulate the effect of electrical stimulation can be useful in understanding field distribution in the brain and therefore, the actual point of stimulation before doing it on human subject. With the help of this model, parameters like the stimulus strength as well as electrode placement and its effect can be tested much more easily while targeting a specific location in the brain model.

Electrical current and Electrical circuit interfaces of AC/DC Module and Time dependent study has been used for this model. Two electrodes were used for generating the required pulse waveform. Then depending upon the part of the brain to be stimulated, the Electrodes position and waveform properties were optimized so as to get accurate information.
