abstract

  • Objective repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a promising intervention for the treatment of post-stroke motor deficits. Since the crucial role of non-primary motor cortices and contralesional brain areas is emerging for motor recovery in chronic stroke; we assessed safety and efficacy of bilateral rTMS over the motor areas associated to physical training (PT) on upper extremity (UE) motor function. Methods double-blind, placebo- controlled trial on 20 patients with chronic stroke conditioning moderate to mild upper …
