BACKGROUND The brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) gene often shows a single nucleotide polymorphism that is thought to influence synaptic plasticity. It also affects the modulatory effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on motor cortex excitability. OBJECTIVE This study investigated whether BDNF polymorphism influences the effect of rTMS on the motor recovery of patients with stroke. METHODS Forty-four patients (mean age 53.8 years) experiencing unilateral… CONTINUE READING
