abstract

  • OBJECTIVE: To test the efficacy of high frequency (20 Hz) deep rTMS with H-coil on lower limb motor function in patients with chronic subcortical stroke in a double-blind, placebo- controlled, crossover study. BACKGROUND: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been recognized as a promising intervention for treatment of stroke patients. One main limitation in targeting the lower limb motor area is the relative depth of its cortical representation with respect to the head surface. H-coils allow to reach deeper and wider …
