3754. Combined transcranial direct current stimulation and robot-assisted arm training in subacute stroke patients: a pilot study. (Abstract)

Aphasie Test.No major side effects occurred. Arm function of three patients (two with a subcortical lesion) improved significantly, with FM scores increasing from 6 to 28, 10 to 49 and 11 to 48. In the remaining seven patients, all with cortical lesions, arm function changed little, FM scores did not increase more than 5 points. Unexpectedly, aphasia improved in 4 patients.These procedures are safe, and easy to use in a clinical setting. In future studies, patients should be stratified by degree (...) of arm weakness and lesion site, also the unexpected aphasia improvement warrants following-up.

3755. Noninvasive brain stimulation improves language learning. (Abstract)

Noninvasive brain stimulation improves language learning. Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a reliable technique to improve motor learning. We here wanted to test its potential to enhance associative verbal learning, a skill crucial for both acquiring new languages in healthy individuals and for language reacquisition after stroke-induced aphasia. We applied tDCS (20 min, 1 mA) over the posterior part of the left peri-sylvian area of 19 young right-handed individuals
