The project, led by FES Investigator Svetlana Pundik, MS, MSc, started as a CTSC grant that lead to SPIRE award.
Somatosensory deficits are prevalent after stroke, but effective interventions are limited. Brain stimulation of the contralesional primary somatosensory cortex (S1) is a promising adjunct to peripherally administered rehabilitation therapies.
The objective of the study is to assess short-term effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) targeting contralesional (S1) of the upper extremity.
“Does rTMS Targeting Contralesional S1 Enhance Upper Limb Somatosensory Function in Chronic Stroke? A Proof-of-Principle Study ” is now published in Volume 35, Issue 3 of Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair
