BACKGROUND Motor dysfunction in the lower limbs is a common sequela in stroke patients. OBJECTIVE We used transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to determine if applying transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to the primary motor cortex helps enhance cortical excitability. Furthermore, we evaluate if combination anodal tDCS and conventional… CONTINUE READING
