Abstract

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder with motor and non-motor symptoms stemming from the degeneration of dopaminergic neurons. As current pharmacological treatments have complications associated with long-term use, noninvasive brain stimulation, such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), may be a safe, effective option for patients with this condition. [1] The research question is: What are the effects of a single tDCS session combined with static and dynamic balance motor training in a patient with Parkinson's disease?. The findings show that a single session of tDCS combined with motor training can exert a positive influence on both static and dynamic balance in individuals with PD.
