Transcranial magnetic stimulation and cortical evoked potentials: A TMS/EEG co-registration study
OBJECTIVE In recent years, a promising tool has been introduced which allows the co-registration of electroencephalographic (EEG) activity during brain transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TheExpand

Long-lasting depression of motor-evoked potentials to transcranial magnetic stimulation following exercise
We used transcranial magnetic stimulation to study the modulation of motor cortex excitability after rapid repetitive movements. Eleven healthy subjects aged 24–32 years were evaluated. SerialExpand

‘Direct’ and ‘crossed’ modulation of human motor cortex excitability following exercise
Rapid repetitive movements of the thumb (1 min duration) produce a reversible decrease in the activated primary motor cortex (MI) excitability to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) with recoveryExpand

Neurophysiological evidence of neuroplasticity at multiple levels of the somatosensory system in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.
The human somatosensory cortex (S1) is capable of modification after partial peripheral deafferentation, but it is not known whether spinal and brainstem changes contribute to this process. WeExpand

Abnormal fronto‐parietal coupling of brain rhythms in mild Alzheimer's disease: a multicentric EEG study
Cholinergic deafferentation/recovery in rats mainly impinges on the fronto‐parietal coupling of brain rhythms [D. P. Holschneider et al. (1999) Exp. Brain Res., 126, 270–280]. Is this reflected byExpand

Reversible changes of motor cortical outputs following immobilization of the upper limb.
We mapped the cortical representations of the abductor pollicis brevis, flexor carpi radialis, biceps and deltoid muscles in six subjects with unilateral wrist fractures, immediately after theExpand

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) at high and low frequency: an efficacious therapy for major drug-resistant depression?
OBJECTIVE Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is proposed for the treatment of drug-resistant depression. Studies performed in accordance with evidence-based medicine (EBM) areExpand

Motor cortex changes in spinal cord injury: a TMS study
Abstract Using paired pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) paradigms, we studied cortical excitability in a patient with spinal cord lesion. During posterior tibial nerve stimulation, theExpand

Crossed and direct effects of digital nerves stimulation on motor evoked potential: a study with magnetic brain stimulation.
We studied the influence of contralateral and ipsilateral cutaneous digital nerve stimulation on motor evoked potentials (MEPs) elicited in hand muscles by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). WeExpand

Cortical output modulation after rapid repetitive movements
Transcranial magnetic stimulation was used to evaluate changes in motor cortex excitability after rapid repetitive movements in five healthy subjects aged 23–30 years, by considering the amplitude ofExpand
