BACKGROUND Electrical repetitive sensory stimulation (rSS) is a direct and effective means of inducing plasticity processes in human beings, and is increasingly being used as a therapeutic intervention. Suprathreshold intensities induce beneficial effects on tactile perception and sensorimotor abilities. However, it is not known whether there is an optimal range of stimulus intensity. METHODS We investigated the effect of varied intensities (low, 1.19 ± 0.07 mA; intermediate, 3.33 ± 0.27 mA… CONTINUE READING
