Dr. Teresa Kimberley, director of the Institute’s Brain Recovery Lab, presented one-year data findings that showed stroke survivors who receive targeted brain stimulation therapy and rigorous rehabilitation therapy will have twice the sustained limb movement than that of someone who receives the therapy alone.  The presentation was made at the International Stroke Conference in Phoenix earlier this month.

Dr. Kimberley calls her findings a ”watershed moment.” While the research focused on arm movement, she says there's no reason why this wouldn't also work for gait, balance, speech difficulties, and cognition.
