Effects of Somatosensory Stimulation on the Excitability of the Unaffected Hemisphere in Chronic Stroke Patients

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Somatosensory stimulation of the paretic upper limb enhances motor performance and excitability in the affected hemisphere, and increases activity in the unaffected hemisphere, in chronic stroke patients. We tested the hypothesis that somatosensory stimulation of the paretic hand would lead to changes in excitability of the unaffected… (More)
