Stroke can affect anyone – older as well as younger people. The minutes after the stroke determine whether disability or death is the result. Only if acute care, inpatient treatment and rehabilitation are carried out in a targeted and effective manner, the chances are greater that only minor damage remains or that impairments even recede.
Stroke therapy of the future: Stimulating entire networks
The Neurological University Hospital in Tübingen is a world leader in research on TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). In this report you will learn how the stroke therapy, which is always complemented by physiotherapeutic treatment, is being developed from a punctual to an entire network treatment in the brain. Prof. Ulf Ziemann, Medical Director of the Department of Neurology as well as Therapy and Study Coordinator Anna Kempf provide insights into the recent developments and future plans of the international research team.
