Brain-Stimulation for Arm Recovery after Stroke (B-STARS)

For the clinical trial B-STARS we are looking for a motivated student with an interest in rehabilitation and brain stimulation. Recent studies suggest that functional improvement after stroke can be increased with non-invasive brain stimulation. This will be applied in the subacute phase after a stroke. In this study you will have a lot of patient contact. You will be involved in the logisitics of the study. Possible activities are performing the brain stimulation treatment, taking a test battery (mainly motor tests), guiding the patient during an MRI scan and the inclusion procedure. The work will mainly be carried out in De Hoogstraat Rehabilitation and partly in the UMC Utrecht. Then duration of the internship will be at least six months.
