Dissociation of the pathways mediating ipsilateral and contralateral motor‐evoked potentials in human hand and arm muscles
1 Growing evidence points toward involvement of the human motor cortex in the control of the ipsilateral hand. We used focal transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to examine the pathways of theseExpand

Neurophysiology of unimanual motor control and mirror movements
In humans, execution of unimanual motor tasks requires a neural network that is capable of restricting neuronal motor output activity to the primary motor cortex (M1) contralateral to the voluntaryExpand

Modulation of interhemispheric inhibition by volitional motor activity: an ipsilateral silent period study
Brief interruption of voluntary EMG in a hand muscle by focal transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the ipsilateral primary motor cortex (M1), the so‐called ipsilateral silent period (ISP), is aExpand

Transcranial magnetic stimulation and epilepsy
Epileptic conditions are characterized by an altered balance between excitatory and inhibitory influences at the cortical level. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) provides a noninvasiveExpand

Trust at first sight: evidence from ERPs.
We used event-related potentials (ERPs) to tap the temporal dynamics of first impressions based on face appearance. Participants were asked to evaluate briefly presented faces for trustworthiness andExpand

Comparison of the efficacy and tolerability of new antiepileptic drugs: what can we learn from long‐term studies?
Objective –  A review of long‐term open‐label studies was performed with the aim of detecting differences in efficacy and/or tolerability of new antiepileptic drugs (AEDs).

Vegetative versus Minimally Conscious States: A Study Using TMS-EEG, Sensory and Event-Related Potentials
Differential diagnoses between vegetative and minimally conscious states (VS and MCS, respectively) are frequently incorrect. Hence, further research is necessary to improve the diagnostic accuracyExpand

Adjunctive lamotrigine therapy in patients with refractory seizures: a lifetime cost–utility analysis
AbstractObjective: Lamotrigine as add-on treatment (500 mg per day) is effective in patients with refractory epilepsy, but its high cost requires a pharmacoeconomic analysis. We conducted aExpand
