Enhancement of Use-Dependent Plasticity by Somatosensory Stimulation in Chronic Stroke


Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Recent studies have demonstrated that electrical stimulation delivered over the skin increases the muscle strength as measured by a dynamometer in chronic stroke patients. We recently also found out that such stimulation enhances the ability of healthy brains to learn faster, enhancing the beneficial effects of the motor training. The purpose of this study is to find out if this stimulation can enhance the...
