Trans-cranial direct current stimulation (tDCS): A promising new tool to facilitate rehabilitation of manual dexterity after stroke

Abstract:

A major cause of disability after stroke is impaired contralateral manual dexterity. Recently it has been suggested that this may be at least partly due to a maladaptive increase in inhibition from the unaffected primary motor cortex (M1). Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive potential therapy that modulations M1 excitability via a weak electrical direct current applied to the scalp. Immediate improvement of affected hand function was obtained by anodal (excitatory...
