Trans-cranial Direct Current Stimulation Study

Our 8-week pilot Trans-cranial Direct Current Stimulation study has been completed. The purpose of this study was to determine if transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in conjunction with speech therapy would improve sentence production and word retrieval in individuals with chronic post stroke aphasia.

Please contact Shilpa Shamapant at shilpa@austinspeechlabs.org if you are interested or if you know someone who is interested in future tDCS studies.
