Neuroscientists from CEITEC Masaryk University published last year the results of a unique research, describing that application of non-invasive brain stimulation can improve speech in patients with Parkinson's disease in the long run. Now the team is ready to continue with their research and designed the first study to examine the use of non-invasive brain stimulation performed at home in combination with speech therapy.
