A comparative analysis of the corticospinal tract nervous propagation and excitability threshold was carried out in young (25 subjects, age range 16-35 years) and in elderly (40 subjects, 51-86 years) populations of healthy volunteers. Motor evoked potentials (MEPs) were recorded from the hand and foot muscles following transcranial magnetic stimulation (TCS) during complete relaxation and active contraction of the target muscles. Threshold intensities corresponded to the stimulator's output… CONTINUE READING
