Neuroplastic responses to anodal tDCS are delayed for mature adults

The increase of corticospinal excitability (which is a measure of the induced neuroplasticity) resulting from anodal stimulation of the motor cortex is delayed in mature adults compared to young adults, but the extent of the increase is comparable. By administering tDCS prior to (as opposed to during) motor training for mature patients, the optimal clinical benefit for improving motor function, skills and recovery from stroke can be achieved.
