abstract

  • The a-tDCS can transiently raise corticospinal excitability to affected muscles in patients with chronic SCI after 2mA stimulation. Sensory perception can improve with both 1 and 2mA stimulation. This study gives support to the safe and effective use of a-tDCS using small electrodes in patients with SCI and highlights the importance of stimulation intensity.
