Hemiplegia occurs when the function of motor areas in the brain become impaired, predominantly unilaterally, during perinatal development. Children with hemiplegia show impairments in moto...
Motor impairment (impairment of movement) due to stroke is one of the leading disabilities in adults. In addition to established means of facilitating motor recovery after stroke such as p...
This study will compare the effectiveness of different polarities of transcranial direct current stimulation paired with intensive motor training in recovery of upper extremity function in...
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown not only to improve motor function but also increase cortical excitability and neural plasticity. Several studies demonstrated...
Chronic stroke patients (> 6 months) with severe motor impairment of the upper extremity will be enrolled in this single-centre, randomized controlled clinical trial (RCT). All patients wi...
Transcranial direct current stimulation is one of the non-invasive techniques whose main mechanism of action is based on its modulation of cortical excitability. The objective of this study is to anal...
To systematically examine the safety and effectiveness of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) interventions in pediatric motor disorders.
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is an appropriate treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD). It offers promising results and is known to improve symptoms. Nevertheless, consistent paramete...
Relationship between motor function improvements and white matter structure after low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation plus intensive occupational therapy in chronic subcortical stroke patients.
This is a second paper on partly the same patient group and the same intervention, but with a different anatomical outcome measurement. An intervention that combines low-frequency repetitive transcran...
we investigated the effect of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) applied over the pharyngeal motor area in dysphagia associated with multiple sclerosis (MS).
A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS of an upper extremity vein (e.g., AXILLARY VEIN; SUBCLAVIAN VEIN; and JUGULAR VEINS). It is associated with mechanical factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Primary) secondary to other anatomic factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Secondary). Symptoms may include sudden onset of pain, warmth, redness, blueness, and swelling in the arm.
Application of electric current in treatment without the generation of perceptible heat. It includes electric stimulation of nerves or muscles, passage of current into the body, or use of interrupted current of low intensity to raise the threshold of the skin to pain.
A major nerve of the upper extremity. In humans, the fibers of the median nerve originate in the lower cervical and upper thoracic spinal cord (usually C6 to T1), travel via the brachial plexus, and supply sensory and motor innervation to parts of the forearm and hand.
