1. Cunningham, David A. TAILORING BRAIN STIMULATION TO THE NATURE OF REHABILITATIVE THERAPIES IN CHRONIC STROKE: LESSONS FROM THE MODERATE TO THE SEVERELY IMPAIRED.

Degree: PhD, College of Arts and Sciences / School of Biomedical Sciences, 2016, Kent State University

Over the past decade there has been growing interest in combining non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) with unilateral therapy in order to accelerate rehabilitative outcomes in stroke. However, despite showing promise in early studies, in several recent clinical trials, non-invasive brain stimulation has failed to augment rehabilitative outcomes of the paretic upper-limb. Instead, the benefits of NIBS+therapy combination are modest and very considerably from patient-to-patient failing especially in patients with greater upper-limb impairments. Given these inconsistent results, this dissertation attempts to address whether pairing NIBS with unilateral approaches are generalizable to patients in all ranges of impairments or do the mechanisms of unilateral therapies fail across the severely impaired? Further, this dissertation will addresses whether alternate therapies, such as bilateral therapies, are better suited for the more impaired patients where they may be more feasible and offer neurophysiologic advantages not offered through unilateral therapies. Advisors/Committee Members: Plow, Ela (Committee Chair).
