Study of brain activity changes by electrical stimulation on scalp and rehabilitation

Basic Information

Recruitment status Recruiting
Health condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedCentral Nervous System Diseases
Date of first enrollment17/03/2023
Target sample size160
Countries of recruitment
Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)A crossover assignment of "non-invasive brain stimulation + rehabilitation training" and "no non-invasive brain stimulation (sham stimulation) + rehabilitation training" will be conducted on 40 patients in each disabling function of motor dysfunction, higher brain dysfunction, language impairment, and swallowing dysfunction in patients with neurological diseases. Brain stimulation is performed by transcranial static magnetic field stimulation (tSMS). Stimulation duration is three 30-minute sessions per day, one of which is combined with clinical rehabilitation training. A neodymium magnet (N40) is used for tSMS and is fixed to the head with headgear.


Primary OutcomeActivity changes in EEG (analysis of EEG amplitude, frequency analysis)
Secondary OutcomeAmplitude values in each frequency band of MEG Changes in cerebral blood flow during the task and at rest by fMRI Motor evoked potential by TMS Evaluation of motor and cognitive functions
