tDCS application for motor rehabilitation

Edited by Rodrigo Vitório, Samuel Stuart, Leigh Charvet and Alan Godfrey.

Neuer Inhalt

An increasing number of studies highlight the potential application of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for motor rehabilitation in neurological diseases as well as in healthy aging. tDCS is a technique where a constant weak electric current is passed through scalp electrodes and has been shown to modulate excitability in both cortical and subcortical brain areas. Although the results of tDCS interventions for motor rehabilitation are still preliminary, they encourage further research to better understand its therapeutic potential and to inform optimal clinical use.  

This collection of articles aims to present the most recent advances in tDCS for motor rehabilitation, addressing topics such as theoretical, methodological, and practical approaches to be considered when designing tDCS-based rehabilitation. Submissions of both experimental and review studies is encouraged.
