Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) to Promote Hand Recovery in Stroke "rTMS"


Phase 1 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Paralysis following stroke stems not only from the loss of neurons killed by the stroke but also from the loss of neurons lying dormant in the stroke hemisphere. One of the reasons viable neurons become dormant (down-regulated) is because of excessive interhemispheric inhibition imposed on them from the nonstroke hemisphere. The challenge in neurorehabilitation is to restore excitability and voluntary control...
