Abstract

Recent studies showed that non-invasive brain stimulation methods, such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can improve the symptoms of neglect in stroke patients. Here, we adopted this approach to improve visuo-spatial deficit in a patient with traumatic brain injury (TBI) that showed important symptoms of visuo-spatial neglect. We found that continuous theta burst stimulation (cTBS) applied over the left posterior parietal cortex (PPC) induced a clinical improvement of cognitive disorder associated to a functional changes of fronto-parietal network as assessed by means of TMS and resting state fMRI.
