We have examined input-output patterns in the corticospinal system after incomplete spinal cord injury. The amplitude of the motor evoked potential (MEP) to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was used to study the patterns of recruitment, with increasing stimulus intensity, and facilitation, with increasing voluntary contraction, in thenar muscles of 12 patients with incomplete spinal cord injuries and 13 control subjects. The patients had all suffered spinal cord injury at a segmental… CONTINUE READING
