Abstract

The effect of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on corticospinal excitability and inhibition was studied throughout this thesis. The primary aim was to investigate the induction of homeostatic plasticity and its effect on muscle strength and to determine the influence of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) polymorphism on the induction of homeostatic plasticity and muscle strength.
