Abstract

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown to enhance stroke rehabilitation outcomes in motor domains. Our previous research suggests that tDCS can promote speech motor learning in unimpaired individuals. In this talk, we discuss an apraxia of speech treatment study that combines tDCS with behavioral treatment and examines behavioral and neurobiological outcome measures.
