Effect of Thermal Stimulation on Cortical Excitability and Motor Function in Chronic Stroke Patients


Phase 1/2 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has confirmed that thermal stimulation (TS) may facilitate cortical excitability in healthy adults. However, it is unknown whether TS can increase cortical excitability in stroke patients. Compared to the fMRI, the transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) possesses more concise conditions in temporal resolution, and it can present the cerebrum activation situation more...
