Summary

In this project, we will assess the effects of aerobic exercise training (AET), repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) or their combination on symptoms of depression as well as walking function in persons following stroke. Both of these treatments are known to be beneficial for treating depression in individuals without stroke, though neither has been adequately studied post-stroke. Furthermore, substantive studies show that exercise improves post-stroke walking function, thus offering a way to study the effects of depression on response to rehabilitation following stroke.
