Abstract

Methods that modulate cortical excitability have potential as adjuvant treatments for aphasia rehabilitation. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive method of stimulation with clinical advantages over other methods, in that it is portable, relatively simple and inexpensive to administer, with minimal side effects to participants. Furthermore, tDCS can be administered easily simultaneously with behavioral speech-language therapy (SLT).
