tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) will be used in chronic stroke patients to improve a variety of functions with superior or inferior limb.
tDCS will be used in chronic stroke patients to improve a variety of functions such as motor functions with superior or inferior limb.
tDCS will be applied in a placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomised fashion. Behavioural data will be collected before and after tDCS, as well as brain functional imaging data.
