Summary

Fatigue is a common and disabling symptom post-stroke.

Causes of post-stroke fatigue are not well known.

This study will investigate how changes in the way the brain communicates may be associated with post-stroke fatigue.

To do this the investigators will use transcranial magnetic stimulation, TMS, to measure how the brain communicates.

TMS uses a magnet that turns on parts of the brain, and researchers can measure the response by placing sensors on specific muscles in the legs.

The researchers will also measure how you walk by placing sensors on your body and having you walk on a treadmill.
