Use of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) Coupled With Constraint Induced Movement Therapy in Stroke Patient

2014-08-27 03:12:55 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether noninvasive brain stimulation associated with motor learning offers an additional benefit than motor learning alone in patients with stroke.

The investigators hypothesis is that active transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) combined with constraint induced movement therapy (CIMT) will induce a greater motor function improvement as compared with sham tDCS combined with CIMT.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.

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.

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

A technique that involves the use of electrical coils on the head to generate a brief magnetic field which reaches the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is coupled with ELECTROMYOGRAPHY response detection to assess cortical excitability by the threshold required to induce MOTOR EVOKED POTENTIALS. This method is also used for BRAIN MAPPING, to study NEUROPHYSIOLOGY, and as a substitute for ELECTROCONVULSIVE THERAPY for treating DEPRESSION. Induction of SEIZURES limits its clinical usage.
