Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
RRI is an important site in a multi-center trial examining the therapeutic effects of navigated repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in stroke rehabilitation. The study examines whether adding navigated rTMS to occupational therapy leads to greater gains in patients’ motor function after stroke.
The purpose of the Navigated Inhibitory rTMS to Contralateral Hemisphere (NICHE) Trial is to evaluate the benefit of navigated inhibitory transcranial magnetic stimulation on stroke rehabilitation.

Secondary stroke prevention by Uniting Community and Chronic care model teams Early to End Disparities (SUCCEED) is an outpatient, community-centered program that was created to improve the control of risk factors after stroke in socioeconomically disadvantaged populations of Los Angeles County.
