This study will investigate the use of High-definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS) in the functional improvement of hand dexterity while performing music-assisted hand exercises.
Stroke is a serious medical and health problem in the US, and most of the stroke patients suffer from upper-limb motor deficits including weakened hand dexterity. As upper-limb motor functions are crucial for most of the daily living activities, there is a need for effective intervention. The current therapeutic approaches involve intensive physical therapy training involving repetitive tasks which causes fatigue and lack of engagement in the patients. To address this issue, the investigators will investigate the combined use of individually targeted noninvasive brain stimulation (T-NIBS) using High-definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS) and music-assisted hand exercises using MusicGlove to modulate the neuroplasticity in the desired manner to observe functional changes in hand dexterity.

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) are noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques able to modulate cortical excitability.
Muscle weakness in patients with chronic stroke is due to neuromuscular disorders such as muscle atrophy, loss of voluntary activation or weak muscle contractile properties which are majored by the im...
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive tool that induces neuromodulation in the brain. Several studies have shown the effectiveness of tDCS in improving language recovery in ...
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.
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.
Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
