ANOVA revealed that %DWSA in the anodal group was significantly greater than the control group by the third week (p < 0.05), but differences between the anodal and cathodal groups and between the cathodal and control groups were not significant (p > 0.05).
On day 21, the averaged normalized amount of ultimate tensile stress was greater in anodal group E3 and cathodal group E4 than in control group C2, but this difference was not statistically significant (Table 2).
The mean (SD) distance between the [beta]-1 and [beta]-2 trf bands in the positive control was 2.52 (0.6) mm (n = 15; CV = 2.4%); the distance between the [beta]-1 trf and the cathodal margin of the gel was 17.3 (0.29) mm (n = 15; CV = 1.7%).
However, since the polarity and magnitude of synaptic plasticity varies as a function of activation history in the postsynaptic neuron, future studies should seek to determine whether inhibitory priming protocols (e.g., cathodal tDCS) are also reliable over time.
The purpose of this study was to explore the influence of bimanual intervention paired with cathodal tDCS to the nonlesioned hemisphere on behavioral and neurophysiologic outcomes in children with UCP.
They combined Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) with c-tDCS and demonstrated that anodal c-tDCS to the right cerebellum increases the inhibitory effect to the primary motor cortex while cathodal c-tDCS to the right cerebellum reduces this effect.
Cathodal tDCS decreases cortical excitability, whereas anodal tDCS increases cortical excitability [11, 12].
This shift from apoTf (cathodal position) toward Tf with one or two [Fe.sup.3+] ions bound (more anodal position) was observed for the three [Fe.sup.3+] compounds but was more pronounced for Fe:NTA.
The anodal chamber was filled with 1.2 mL of 10 mmol/L Tris buffer (pH 8.5) containing 100 mmol/L NaCl; the cathodal chamber contained the same volume of 10 mmol/L Tris buffer alone.
Paired stimulation included 240 pairs of TMS pulses delivered over the area of the motor cortex corresponding to the right TA muscle and cathodal transspinal stimulation delivered to the spine.
1, A-L; only the gelatin-based plasma substitutes showed clear interference in the electropherograms, although the dextran-based Rheomacrodex produced a small additional peak cathodal to the [gamma]-globulin zone on the Capillarys.
