This study compared the effect that real stimulation via tDCS paired with vNEST treatment versus sham stimulation paired with vNEST treatment has on spontaneous sentence production.

Three participants received real stimulation and three received sham stimulation for 20 minutes during 3 hours of therapy, five days a week for three consecutive weeks and then continued with only vNEST treatment for five weeks.

Participants were trained 30 verbs and taught how to verbalize and write sentences using those verbs.

Results are currently being analyzed.
