Transcranial stimulation enhances beneficial effect of aerobic exercise on gait in Parkinson’s patients

Publicado em 24 agosto 2021
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can increase the benefits of aerobic exercise and improve the gait of patients with Parkinson’s disease immediately after a session. Step time variability decreases, reaction time shortens, and executive control of gait is enhanced.
