OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of simultaneous, bihemispheric, dual-mode stimulation using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on motor functions and cortical excitability in healthy individuals. METHODS Twenty-five healthy, right-handed volunteers (10 men, 15 women; mean age, 25.5(More)
BACKGROUND Noninvasive brain stimulation (NBS) using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) or transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has recently been adopted for modulating motor function in stroke patients. OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of simultaneous dual-mode stimulation using rTMS and tDCS over the bilateral primary(More)
BACKGROUND Optimal protocol of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on post-stroke dysphagia remains uncertain with regard to its clinical efficacy. OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of high-frequency rTMS at the bilateral motor cortices over the cortical representation of the mylohyoid muscles in the(More)
BACKGROUND Both transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), when provided to stroke patients in combination with motor training, enhance therapeutic efficacy and motor function. However, the majority of previous studies have only examined a single treatment modality. OBJECTIVE The authors investigated the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical significance of quantitative parameters in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)-induced motor evoked potentials (MEP) which can be adopted to predict functional recovery of the upper limb in stroke patients in the early subacute phase. METHODS One hundred thirteen patients (61 men, 52 women; mean age 57.8±12.2(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the proper timing of extradural cortical stimulation (ECS) on the motor relearning in a rat model of subacute photothrombotic stroke. METHODS Photothrombotic infarction was induced on the dominant sensorimotor cortex in male Sprague-Dawley rats after training in a single-pellet reaching task (SPRT). Rats were(More)
BACKGROUND Internet-based health resources can support informal caregivers who are caring for children or adolescents with health care needs. However, few studies discriminate informal caregivers' needs from those of their care recipients or those of people caring for adults. OBJECTIVE This study reviews the literature of health-related Internet use among(More)
The Republic of Korea (ROK) has a remarkable development history, including its status as the first country to transition from aid recipient to member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development Development Assistance Committee (DAC). However, since becoming a donor country, the ROK has struggled to achieve internationally accepted(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of dual-mode non-invasive brain stimulation (NBS) on motor function and cortical excitability using both repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over the bilateral primary motor cortices (M1s) of healthy individuals. Fifteen healthy(More)
