Abstract

Down syndrome (DS) compromises selective motor control and functional independence, causing instability in the control/planning and execution of motor movements [1]. Studies involving 3D kinematic analysis of the upper limbs have shown that such aspects can be improved with the training of motor tasks using non-immersive virtual reality (NIVR) [2,3]. Moreover, transcranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) is believed to enhance these results [4].
