Brain stimulation might be viable post-stroke

Stroke recovery can be a challenge - many, many know that better than I - but it's good to see research on possible ways to improve that recovery.

A recent study discussed how brain stimulation is viable in post-stroke rehab:
Repeated noninvasive transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) helped treat spasticity, motor symptoms, and post-stroke pain in a small population of stroke patients, researchers reported here.
Check out the link for the whole story, and keep in mind the research included a small number of people. Still, this bears watching.
