BACKGROUND Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the motor cortex can enhance the performance of a paretic upper extremity after stroke. Reported effects on lower limb (LL) function are sparse. OBJECTIVE The authors examined whether tDCS can increase the force production of the paretic quadriceps. METHODS In this double-blind, crossover, sham-controlled experimental design, 8 participants with chronic subcortical stroke performed knee extension using their hemiparetic leg before… CONTINUE READING
