Abstract

Motor learning is a relatively permanent change of improving motor skills, resulting from repetitive training and an important process of motor recovery in neurorehabilitation. There are various methods of physical therapies, medications, stem cell therapy, invasive and non-invasive neuromodulation techniques for recovery of motor function after stroke. In this review, we describe motor learning and transcranial direct current stimulation among noninvasive neuromodulation techniques to enhance the motor learning.
