The aim of the study is to determine if 2-week repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation at the subacute phase of stroke (between day 7 and day 14) improves significantly arm motility at 3 months with remaining effect at one year, without significant adverse effect.
Stroke survivors may be left with disability involving speech or residual arm or leg weakness. Despite spontaneous improvement on the weeks following stroke, the importance of final disability is unpredictable. If the core of the infarct is represented by dead neurons, the neurons from adjacent areas seem to be staggered and their lack of excitability has been correlated to a bad prognosis. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) seems to be a promising technique since high frequency rTMS can increase excitability of the targeted neurons.
The aim of the study is to evaluate after 2 weeks of 20 min of rTMS each day: 1) the improvement of arm function and neurological and disability scales, immediately after the 2-week session, at one month, 3 months and evaluate the remnant effect at 12 months, 2) to correlate these scales to physiological parameters in order to assess the clinical modifications to the electrophysiological modifications, 3) to assert the safety of high frequency rTMS at the subacute phase of ischaemic stroke.

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.
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.
Diseases of the parasympathetic or sympathetic divisions of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; which has components located in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Autonomic dysfunction may be associated with HYPOTHALAMIC DISEASES; BRAIN STEM disorders; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES. Manifestations include impairments of vegetative functions including the maintenance of BLOOD PRESSURE; HEART RATE; pupil function; SWEATING; REPRODUCTIVE AND URINARY PHYSIOLOGY; and DIGESTION.
Gait abnormalities that are a manifestation of nervous system dysfunction. These conditions may be caused by a wide variety of disorders which affect motor control, sensory feedback, and muscle strength including: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or MUSCULAR DISEASES.
Diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. This includes disorders of the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, peripheral nerves, nerve roots, autonomic nervous system, neuromuscular junction, and muscle.
