Testing the idea that fatigue occurring after stroke is due to changes in the brain regions controlling the muscles using non-invasive brain stimulation and brain imaging techniques in 142 stroke patients, half of who will be those who complain of fatigue.
Using trans-cranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke
Co-funded by the Stroke Association, a new review of the research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for the recovery of leg movement and walking suggests that although it can bring about changes in leg function, the design of existing studies are very different, making it difficult to determine its effectiveness.
