We have combined robot-assisted motor imagery and brain-computer interface (MI-BCI) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for the rehabilitation of stroke patients due to the potential of these combined methods to modulate the cortical excitability, and hence the potential to improve motor function recovery. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the structural and functional changes of the brain after rehabilitation training of MI-BCI combined with or without tDCS in stroke patients.
