It is likely that transcranial magnetic brain stimulation will be used for the clinical treatment of stroke and stroke-related impairments in the future. The anatomic target and stimulation parameters will likely vary for any clinical focus, be it weakness, pain, or cognitive or communicative dysfunction. Biomarkers may also be useful for identifying patients who will respond best, with a goal to enhance clinical decision making. Combination with drugs or specific types of therapeutic exercise may be necessary to achieve maximal response.
