Brain stimulation for post-stroke aphasia

The physiological and behavioural effects of one session of low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in post-stroke aphasia

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a method to increase activity of the brain after stroke.

This technique is safe and non-invasive, and has shown early promising results as a treatment for aphasia. However, to better understand how this treatment works, we need to conduct further experiments.

We are looking for participants within the Greater Adelaide area to attend 3 in-person sessions at the University of Adelaide, 2 of which will involve rTMS.
