Brain stimulation as a treatment for Alzheimer's

Has transcranial magnetic brain stimulation ever been used to treat Alzheimer’s? I’ve seen a couple articles on the Internet saying that it’s been investigated, but I haven’t seen any results one way or another as to whether or not it actually works.

I’ve also heard about another kind of brain stimulation called direct-current brain stimulation that has been shown to improve performance on certain tasks in normal people, but I haven’t seen anything about people with dementia.

Does anyone here know anything about these two types of brain stimulation, and whether or not either one of them has been used to treat Alzheimer’s?
