Effects of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Associated to Sensory Therapy for Treatment of Motor Function of Upper Limb of Stroke Patients


Brief description of study

The aim of this research will be to investigate in stroke patients whether upper limb motor function can be maximized in response to sensory stimulation by comparing protocols for the application of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) in the cortical region of S1 and Sensory Therapy in the upper limb paretic. Patients will be randomly and randomly allocated into four groups, Group 1 (G1) composed of individuals who will receive the protocol for the application of rTMS in the ipsilateral S1 cortex and fictitious sensory therapy in the paretic upper limb; Group 2 (G2) subjects will receive protocol of Sensory Therapy in the upper limb ethical and application of fictitious rTMS in the ipsilesional S1 cortex; Group 3 (G3): application of the protocol of application of rTMS in the ipsilateral S1 cortex associated with Sensory Therapy in the upper limb paretic and, G4 (GSHAM) control group in which fictitious rTMS will be performed and fictitious Sensory Therapy in the paretic upper limb).
