Combining magnetic stimulation with intensive training can help severe arm problems even in the chronic phase of stroke

We know intense muscle training of the upper body can improve muscle weakness after a stroke. However, this approach is limited to patients with mild-to-moderate stroke since severe stroke patients are typically unable to practice enough to regain movement. Understanding how intense training improves movement after stroke can help us develop therapies for severe stroke patients,…

Can brain stimulation improve daily activities and arm function?

If you’ve been following Stokemark, you’ve come across Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation or tDCS. This is a form of noninvasive brain stimulation that makes use of low levels of constant current delivered directly into targeted areas of the brain. This technique has been found useful in neurological conditions like stroke. Most effective type of tDCS Although studies have…
