Transcranial stimulation of the human primary motor cortices

Abstract:

The primary aim of this thesis is to investigate the physiological effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as applied to the primary motor cortex (M1). This research was largely motivated by the need to understand the basic physiological changes of tDCS, in order to evaluate its use as a potential tool in recovery after stroke, as well as its more general applicability as a tool to modulate plasticity. The experiments in this thesis assess the ability of tDCS to modulate ...
