Abstract

Objective: The primary aim of this prospective, randomized, sham controlled study was to evaluate the effectiveness of anodal or bihemispheric transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) applications on the upper extremity motor functions of patients with stroke. Another aim was to compare the effectiveness of bihemispheric tDCS with anodal tDCS applications.
