What Do We Do?

This research is being done to find out if non-invasive brain stimulation combined with a rehabilitation therapy improves arm weakness that is caused by a stroke. The stimulation is called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), which applies a weak electrical current to stimulate specific areas of the brain. All participants will receive 10 sessions of rehabilitation with the hand that was affected by the stroke while wearing a mitt on the unaffected hand during therapy and at home, a special type of rehabilitation known as constraint-induced movement therapy. Each session of therapy will last about two and a half hours. During the first part of each therapy session, participants will receive tDCS while performing the exercises.

Compensation

Participants will receive $75/visit. The entire study from start to finish will comprise of at least 15 visits; this includes the initial screening visit in addition to the 10 therapy sessions as well as evaluations conducted before and after the therapy sessions.

Eligibility

Age Range: 
18-80 years old
Inclusion Criteria: 
  • Are 18-80 years old
  • Had a first-time ischemic stroke (caused by a blood clot) that occurred at least 1 month but not more than 6 months ago
  • Experience residual arm or hand weakness

If you are a stroke survivor, or know someone who has had a stroke, but do not qualify for this study, we ask that you still contact us. We offer other programs that you or someone you know may be eligible for.
