This study was designed to examine the effect of different stimulation frequencies on the inability to use spoken language due to a stroke-induced brain lesion. Patients were tested for their ability to correctly name a picture following either high, low, or sham stimulation. This study demonstrated that acute, high-frequency, brain stimulation using BrainsWay® Deep TMS, or Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, significantly improves stroke-induced inability to use spoken language.
