Clinical Trial Summary

Non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) is a safe, painless way to improve brain function. It is used for many conditions, including to help children with disabilities. However, it can be challenging to apply NIBS in very young children and infants. A new, simple form of NIBS called transcranial static magnetic field stimulation (tSMS) is a promising tool for early brain stimulation. tSMS in adults has been shown to be safe, tolerable and have the desired effects on brain activity when applied to the motor cortex of the brain. However, how tSMS affects on motor function is not understood. This research will use tSMS to target the motor cortex which is responsible for voluntary movement. The study will determine if tSMS can improve motor learning in healthy children. It is hypothesized that application of tSMS on the right motor cortex will decrease excitability of the motor cortex and will lead to improved motor learning in the right hand. tSMS has the potential to become a safe, inexpensive, home-based way to enhance personalized rehabilitation for disabled children.
