As one of the leaders in post-acute brain injury research, the Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute is always looking to push the current boundaries of treatment. A new area of research in the field of brain injury relates to the use of repeated transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). In a nutshell, rTMS involves using temporary, externally applied magnetism in order to change localized functioning of the brain so as to better improve recovery. TLC Medical Director Dr. Brent Masel, Research Coordinator Jack Foreman and Physical Therapist Claudia Forshee recently presented a series of research posters at academic conferences which demonstrate both how rTMS helped a patient with a spinal cord injury recover hand function and how it improved mobility for a patient with a brain injury. These are just a few of the examples of the rTMS research ongoing at TLC. The research is presented below in its original conference posters format as powerpoint. Though this may be a bit more technical than ideal for some readers of this blog, hopefully it will at least succeed in giving an overall idea of some of the groundbreaking research at TLC using this new treatment methodology.
