Abstract

Stroke is a leading cause of disability worldwide. About one thirds of stroke survivors
are still requiring assistance with activity of daily living 6 moths after stroke. The transcranial
magnetic stimulation (TMS) was firstly used as a tool for predicting recovery of motor
function after stroke and was later used to modify cortical excitability for rehabilitations.
From the previous studies, the efficacy of TMS for gaining in motor function are modest.
Further investigation is needed, before TMS can be used in routine clinical care.
