  • Description: Ischemic cerebellar infarctions produce distinct clinical patterns including motor disturbances such as limb dysmetria, intention tremor, axial lateropulsion, and dysarthria. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) might serve as an innovative tool to support functional recovery in stroke patients but has never been tested in patients with cerebellar stroke. The aim of the present study was to determine if excitatory repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation protocol the “intermittent theta burst stimulation” (iTBS) applied over the lateral cerebellum on patients affected by cerebellar stroke could influence the plasticity of the cerebello-thalamo-cortical-circuits. Six chronic cerebellar stroke patients were submitted to two weeks of iTBS applied bilaterally over the cerebellum. All patients underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 3T including T1-weighted volumes to reconstruct for each patient the damaged area. Before...
