BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Visual neglect is a frequent disability in stroke and adversely affects mobility, discharge destination, and length of hospital stay. It is assumed that its severity is enhanced by a released interhemispheric inhibition from the unaffected toward the affected hemisphere. Continuous theta burst transcranial magnetic stimulation (TBS) is a new inhibitory brain stimulation protocol which has the potential to induce behavioral effects outlasting stimulation. We aimed to test… CONTINUE READING

To evaluate the specificity of the TBS effect , 3 conditions were tested : 2 TBS trains over the left contralesional posterior parietal cortex , 2 trains of sham stimulation over the contralesional posterior parietal cortex , and a control condition without any intervention .
