Enhancing Motor Plasticity After Perinatal Stroke Using tDCS "tDCS"


Phase 2 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

The purpose of this study is to test tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation), a type of non-invasive brain stimulation, to determine whether it can improve motor function in children with perinatal stroke and hemiparesis. Children 6-18 years with imaging-confirmed perinatal stroke and functional motor impairment will be recruited. Children will be randomized (1:1) to receive sham or tDCS (20 minutes...
