Abnormalities in brain plasticity, including abnormal information processing by disturbed cortical inhibition and facilitation in schizophrenia, have been described several times in the past. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) provides a neurophysiological technique for the measurement of cortical excitability, especially of the motoneural system. With TMS it is possible to explore important aspects of the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying schizophrenia using recently developed… CONTINUE READING
