Clinical trials incorporating non-invasive brain stimulation have explored interventions for improvements in motor function in children with cerebral palsy. Trials performed applying two specific forms of stimulation, transcranial direct-current stimulation and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, are presented within this chapter. Additionally, we discuss specific considerations when designing and implementing a clinical trial with non-invasive brain stimulation in this specific pediatric population.
