Aim of this research was exploring effect of transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) on working memory (WM) in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) region in healthy people.The method used in this research was experimental with random assignment and control group. The population was male students of Kharazmi university in range of 18 to 23 years old. Thirty participant undertook three experimental sessions in which they received 15 minutes of  2 mA anodal TDCS or sham TDCS. After and before stimulation participant performed n-back task to measure reaction time and correct answers. After analysis of covariance there was significant  statistically changing in reaction time and correct answers.The results shows that anodal stimulation reduced reaction time and increased correct answers and it seems made enhance on working memory
