Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation in Aphasia Rehabilitation
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
The brain is a dynamic organ, sensitive to both internal and external environmental changes. Said neuroplasticity is also observed in people who have suffered from acquired brain injury or any other type of disorder that affects the nervous system. The functional prognosis of a person who has suffered or suffers from any of these problems largely depends on whether said adaptation is guided properly.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive technique that enables us to modulate some of the neuronal changes in a safe, non-invasive manner, as long as it is performed by an experienced group. Moreover, it may be combined with other types of techniques to improve efficacy.
There are multiple uses for the technique and these are sure to be elaborated upon in the coming years, given the different research protocols underway.
