Objective: This study aimed to examine the impact of transcranial direct current stimulation (TDSCS) in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) on auditory/verbal working memory. Method: This research was an experimental study with pretest-posttest design, placebo group, and random assignment. The sample comprised 20 eligible male students with dyslexia aging 8 to 10 years. Two types of simulation (anode and sham) with the current of 1.5 mA for 20 minutes were presented in addition to 15 minutes of phonological awareness training in 10 sessions. The participants were tested with n-back task before and after stimulation. Results: Analysis of covariance showed that anode stimulation significantly improved performance in the auditory/verbal dimension of the working memory compared to sham stimulation. Conclusion: This study showed that anode stimulation improves performance on tasks involving auditory working memory.
