Effects of antiepileptic drugs on motor cortex excitability in humans: A transcranial magnetic stimulation study
The effect of a single oral dose of various antiepileptic drugs on the excitability of the motor system was studied in healthy volunteers by means of transcranial magnetic stimulation. MotorExpand

Interaction between intracortical inhibition and facilitation in human motor cortex.
1. In seven normal subjects, subthreshold transcranial magnetic conditioning stimuli (using a figure‐of‐eight coil) were applied over the motor cortex in order to evoke activity in intracorticalExpand

The effect of lorazepam on the motor cortical excitability in man
The effect of the short-acting benzodiazepine lorazepam on motor cortex excitability was investigated in 11 healthy volunteers using the technique of focal transcranial magnetic stimulation. TheExpand

Demonstration of facilitatory I wave interaction in the human motor cortex by paired transcranial magnetic stimulation
1 Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the human motor cortex results in multiple discharges (D and I waves) in the corticospinal tract. We tested whether these volleys can be exploredExpand

Early consolidation in human primary motor cortex
Behavioural studies indicate that a newly acquired motor skill is rapidly consolidated from an initially unstable state to a more stable state, whereas neuroimaging studies demonstrate that the brainExpand

Learning Modifies Subsequent Induction of Long-Term Potentiation-Like and Long-Term Depression-Like Plasticity in Human Motor Cortex
Learning may alter rapidly the output organization of adult motor cortex. It is a long-held hypothesis that modification of synaptic strength along cortical horizontal connections through long-termExpand

Short‐interval paired‐pulse inhibition and facilitation of human motor cortex: the dimension of stimulus intensity
Paired transcranial magnetic stimulation has greatly advanced our understanding of the mechanisms which control excitability in human motor cortex. While it is clear that paired‐pulse excitabilityExpand

Interference of short-interval intracortical inhibition (SICI) and short-interval intracortical facilitation (SICF)
OBJECTIVE Short-interval intracortical inhibition (SICI) is a widely used paired-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) measure to assess inhibition in human motor cortex. However,Expand
