TMS for Stroke Rehabilitation
Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability. Understanding how people recover from stroke remains one of the biggest challenges in neuroscience. As a result, collaborative efforts in recent years have focused on investigating the neurophysiological changes that occur in the brain after stroke, and in developing new approaches to enhance motor recovery. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive tool that has been used to research brain plasticity changes resulting from stroke and as a therapeutic treatment to safely improve motor function.
There are several studies indicating that repetitive TMS may be beneficial for stroke patients to help them learn how to walk again and improve other fine motor skills. Stroke rehabilitation can sometimes take years, so if TMS can help make the process easier, that would be a breakthrough in the treatment of stroke rehabilitation.
