Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is an emerging tool for improving recovery from stroke. However, there has been no trial to determine whether it has a therapeutic benefit in the early stage of cerebral ischemia, and there is no consensus on the optimal time window of stimulation. Here, we described the effects of anodal tDCS in early cerebral ischemia, assessing functional improvements and changes in neuronal plasticity, and identifying the optimal time window for delivering tDCS… CONTINUE READING
