On the spotlight

Double-blind, randomized, pilot study on the application of tDCS and rTMS to promote motor recovery in patients with acute or chronic cerebral ischemia Project Objectives The aim of this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study is to evaluate the benefits resulting from the use of rTMS/tDCS for the treatment of patients with acute and chronic ischemic stroke. These effects...

Assessment of the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on disease progression in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Project Objectives The aim of this open-label, non-controlled pilot study is to evaluate the effects of rTMS on disease progression in patients with ALS. The inhibitory stimulation protocol cTBS (continuous theta-burst stimulation) is...
Combination of rTMS with robotic-assisted therapy of upper limbs in patients with chronic stroke Project Objectives This randomized, double-blind, pilot study aims at evaluating the effect of the combination of rTMS with robotic-assisted therapy (by using robot inMotion2 and 3) applied to the upper limb in chronic stroke patients. The primary objective is to assess whether the...
Pilot study to evaluate the safety of low frequency and low intensity transcranial magnetic stimulation (ELF-MF) in patients with acute cerebral ischemia Project Objectives The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety of pulsed ELF-MF for the treatment of patients with acute ischemic stroke. This effect could be related to the ability of ELF-MF (already demonstrated in vitro) to ...
