Spinal Cord Ser Cases



Motor cortical excitability behavior in chronic spinal cord injury neuropathic pain individuals submitted to transcranial direct current stimulation-case reports.


Increased excitability of the motor cortex through transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been described as a non-pharmacological strategy for the treatment of Spinal Cord Injury neuropathic pain (SCINP). It is also believed that the ability to enhance motor cortex excitability (MCE) could be impaired within chronic SCINP individuals. The following case reports describe the MCE behavior in individuals with chronic SCINP submitted to electrical non-invasive neuromodulation.
