Electrical brain stimulation may improve post-stroke aphasia
from MedPage Today
Transcranial direct current stimulation appeared helpful in stroke patients with long-term aphasia and is worthy of further study, researchers said. In a double-blind randomized clinical trial, stroke patients with long-term aphasia who had anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (A-tDCS) combined with speech therapy correctly named an average of 13.9 words, compared with 8.3 words for patients who had sham tDCS with speech therapy.
