PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to assess changes in thresholds for the onset of short intracortical inhibition (SICI) and intracortical facilitation (ICF) in individuals with chronic stroke compared to age-matched healthy adults and evaluate the relationship between these thresholds and motor function in the chronic stroke group. METHODS Paired-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation was used to derive thresholds for the onset of SICI and ICF in 12 neurologically healthy and 12… CONTINUE READING
