Aphasia recovery is associated with a complex pattern of brain reorganization,
involving both ipsilateral and contralateral brain regions, modulated by lesion size and site,
time post-onset, the degree of language lateralization, age, and literacy. The TS use in post-
stroke aphasia rehabilitation needs to consider these variables.
