In magnetic-stimulation studies where motor-evoked potentials (MEP) are measured on different occasions, accurate relocation of the stimulation site on the scalp is essential. Here a novel method of locating neural stimulation sites was tested and the reproducibility of MEPs in the human masseter assessed. The heads of the participants were immobilized in a(More)
The cortical topography of several limb and trunk muscles has been disclosed using transcranial magnetic stimulation, but the corticomotor representation of the human jaw muscles has not yet been described. An experimental paradigm incorporating transcranial magnetic stimulation of verified sites on the scalp was used (a) to determine the cortical(More)
Non-invasive magnetic stimulation of the brain was earlier used to reveal the corticomotor representation of the human masseter muscle but it is unclear how motor tasks affect this map. An experimental approach incorporating transcranial magnetic stimulation of verified locations on the scalp, surface electromyography, and controlled muscle facilitation was(More)
