A high neural activity supports the healing process after a stroke. Unfortunately, the damaged area is often subjected to suppressing signals from the healthy cerebral hemisphere which is hyperactive due to compensation. TMS procedures usually indirectly support the neural functionality in the affected area by either inhibiting the overactive hemisphere or by directly stimulating both hemispheres, synchronously activating the affected hemisphere.
