TDCS in Acute Stroke
Safety Study of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Aphasia Therapy in Acute and Post-acute Stroke

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of transcranial direct current stimulation in aphasia therapy in acute and post-acute stroke.

TDCS has been shown to have a positive effect on clinical outcome in both motor rehabilitation and aphasia treatment in chronic aphasic patients. In healthy subjects the method sped up reaction times in naming and language learning tasks. In TDCS a weak current is applied to the subjects head increasing excitatory activity which might lead to improved brain function.
