BACKGROUND Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can augment force generation and control in single leg joints in healthy subjects and stroke survivors. However, it is unknown whether these effects also result in improved force production and coordination during walking and whether electrode configuration influences these effects. OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of tDCS using different electrode configurations on coordinated force production during walking in a group of healthy… CONTINUE READING
