Targeted Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) to Enhance Speech-Language Treatment Outcomes in Persons with Chronic Post-Stroke Aphasia
After a brain injury, such as a stroke or traumatic brain injury, people may have problems speaking and/or understanding other people speaking. While language therapy for aphasia is effective, improvements are typically slow, and gains may be small. Non-invasive brain stimulation has been suggested as a method to enhance outcomes from language therapy with brain stimulation in people with aphasia. The specific aims will be investigated using randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial.
