The aim of study is to investigate most effective site for control the motor coordination using transcranial direct current stimulation in multiple system atrophy with cerebellar feature
Participants receive transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over M1, cerebellar cortex or sham stimulation for 30 minutes. The type of stimulation depends on random assignment. The participants have a 1 week of wash out period between each stimulation.
The assessment will be done by International Cooperative Ataxia Rating Scale (ICARS), GAITRITE (CIR Systems Inc., Clifton, New Jersey, USA) and PEDOSCAN (DIERS PEDO, Germany) at baseline and immediately after each treatment.

This study will test the tolerability and preliminary efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) combined with a cognitive training program, remotely-delivered using a tele...
Cerebellar ataxia is a neurologic symptom caused by a damage or a dysfunction in cerebellum and results in loss of coordination, balance and postural control. This impairment could result ...
Cathodal Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) was administered to the right parietal region in order to determine if this stimulation could disrupt awareness of the conditioned s...
This study investigates the effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) on postural control of children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). All participants will ...
In this project, the investigators will deliver a 5-day session of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to the leg motor cortex of the FOG patients to examine whether the interve...
Numerous studies have indicated that non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) of the cerebellum could modulate corticospinal excitability (CSE) in young healthy individuals. However, there is no systemat...
Neuroanatomical differences in the cerebellum are among the most consistent findings in multiple system atrophy (MSA) patients. This study performed a detailed cerebellar morphology in MSA patients an...
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) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) have been described as promising alternatives to treat different pain syndromes. This study evaluated the eff...
To assess the impact of tDCS on posture, gait and coordination of movements in subjects with cerebellar ataxia.
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.
A syndrome complex composed of three conditions which represent clinical variants of the same disease process: STRIATONIGRAL DEGENERATION; SHY-DRAGER SYNDROME; and the sporadic form of OLIVOPONTOCEREBELLAR ATROPHIES. Clinical features include autonomic, cerebellar, and basal ganglia dysfunction. Pathologic examination reveals atrophy of the basal ganglia, cerebellum, pons, and medulla, with prominent loss of autonomic neurons in the brain stem and spinal cord.

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.
