Depression of motor cortex excitability by low‐frequency transcranial magnetic stimulation
Spread of excitation, which may be a warning sign for seizures, occurred in one subject and was not accompanied by increased MEP amplitude, suggesting that spread ofexcitation and amplitude changes are different phenomena and also indicating the need for adequate monitoring even with stimulations at low frequencies.

Intracortical inhibition and facilitation in different representations of the human motor cortex.
The findings suggest that the intracortical mechanisms for inhibition and facilitation in different motor representations are not related to the strength of corticospinal projections.
Nervous system reorganization following injury
Modulation of motor cortex excitability by median nerve and digit stimulation
The time course for decreased motor cortex excitability following median nerve stimulation corresponds well to rebound of the 20-Hz cortical rhythm and supports the hypothesis that this increased power represents cortical deactivation.
Mechanism of the silent period following transcranial magnetic stimulation Evidence from epidural recordings
It is suggested that the early part of the silent period following transcranial magnetic stimulation is mainly due to spinal mechanisms, while the late part ofThe SP is related to reduced motor cortex excitability.
Safety of different inter-train intervals for repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and recommendations for safe ranges of stimulation parameters.
Potentials recorded at the scalp by stimulation near the human subthalamic nucleus
Cutaneomotor integration in humans is somatotopically organized at various levels of the nervous system and is task dependent
The findings suggest that somatotopy of input-output relationships is implemented at both a spinal and a cortical level in the human central nervous system and may also depend on the motor task involved.

Novel evidence is provided that the inhibitory influence of the human M1 on ipsilateral hand muscles is to a significant extent mediated below the cortical level, and not only through cortico‐cortical transcallosal connections.
