The main objective of this study is to test a novel approach to improve sensory function after stroke using non-invasive brain stimulation.

About This Study

There is a non-invasive method of brain stimulation, called repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), that has the potential to enhance rehabilitation by driving the functional and structural changes in the brain and leading to improved sensory acuity.

Study Information

This program is for stroke survivors with residual sensory deficits at least 6 months after stroke. Each study participant receives several different brain stimulation treatments. The effect of treatments is obtained by evaluating sensory function both before and after every treatment.
