In normal subjects, focal repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the hand motor area evokes muscle potentials (MEPs) from muscles in the hand (target muscles) and the arm (non-target muscles). In this study we investigated the mechanisms underlying the spread of MEPs induced by focal rTMS in non-target muscles. rTMS was delivered with a(More)
In the atherosclerotic plaque, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) catalyzes prostaglandin E formation, which acts as a pro-atherogenic factor. A polymorphism, G/C -765, within the COX-2 promoter region modulates gene expression and the risk of cerebrovascular disease. We have evaluated the relation between COX-2 G/C -765 genotypes and the occurrence of(More)
