Abstract

Recently neuromodulation therapies such as peripheral nerve stimulation, non-invasive cortical stimulation that could potentially regulate the excitability of the brain are being actively applied to enhance neural recovery in the neurorehabilitation with promising results. Brain plasticity refers the property of the central nervous system to reorganize and remodel following new environmental requirements or injury. In this review, cortical plastic changes after neuromodulation therapies will be described.
