OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that somatosensory stimulation would enhance the effects of training functional hand tasks immediately after practice and 1 day later in chronic subcortical stroke patients. DESIGN Single-blinded and randomized, crossover study. SETTING Human research laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Nine chronic subcortical stroke patients. INTERVENTIONS Three separate sessions of motor training preceded by (1) synchronous peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS), (2) no stimulation… CONTINUE READING
