Recovery of motor function is crucial for regaining independence after stroke. However, making accurate predictions of an individual patient’s motor outcome is difficult when based on clinical assessment alone. There is international consensus that the use of neurophysiological biomarkers can help predict motor outcomes after stroke.

This seminar will focus on the role of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) as an assessment tool in sub-acute stroke. I will discuss the use of TMS, in combination with clinical assessments, to predict motor outcomes and recovery after stroke. This will include presentation of the PREP2 and TWIST algorithms for prediction of upper and lower limb outcomes after stroke. Finally, I will discuss how TMS can and should be used for patient selection and stratification in trials investigating rehabilitation interventions that are initiated early after stroke.
