Brain Stimulation-aided Stroke Rehabilitation: Neural Mechanisms of Recovery






The purpose of this study is to investigate whether benefits of training the affected hand in patients with stroke can be improved by combining training with a painless, noninvasive technique called Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (TDCS). TDCS will be applied over the part of the brain responsible for movements of the affected hand. Also, the investigators will study the changes in the brain that favor recovery of hand function following combination of training and tDCS.
