Less than one percent of individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) experience complete functional recovery by hospital discharge. Functional deficits can be improved after discharge by combining rehabilitation with a promising experimental technique known as non-invasive brain stimulation. Non-invasive brain stimulation is believed to further improve recovery by promoting advantageous plasticity across neural substrates that survive in the majority of SCIs. Specifically, we have recently shown...
