Non-invasive brain stimulation to enhance cognitive rehabilitation after stroke. Neurosci Lett. 2018 Jun 27;: Authors: Draaisma LR, Wessel MJ, Hummel FC Abstract Stroke is the main cause for long-term disability. Stroke symptoms cover various domains, e.g., motor, sensory, language, or other cognitive functions.

However, also cognitive impairments are common after stroke, effecting approximately two-thirds of stroke patients in the acute phase. Although 30% of stroke patients spontaneously recover from their cognitive impairments, large amounts of patients remain cognitively impaired. These patients have more problems reintegrating in personal and ... read more
