When magnetically stimulating peripheral nerves, a local cocontraction of muscle under the coil is observed. We assessed whether this contraction results from: (1) magnetic stimulation of motor nerves, or (2) direct depolarization of the muscle membrane. Wrist extensor muscles of normal subjects were magnetically stimulated with the coil placed directly(More)
Ocular albinism type 1 (OA), caused by mutations in the OA1 gene, encodes a G-protein coupled receptor, OA1, localized in melanosomal membranes of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). This disorder is characterized by both RPE macro-melanosomes and abnormal decussation of ganglion cell axons at the brain's optic chiasm. We demonstrated previously that Oa1(More)
