We compared the ability of 4 magnetic coils to activate peripheral nerves in healthy subjects. No differences in motor threshold intensities were found between the coils, but the intensities needed to elicit maximum compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitudes were different. For superficial nerves maximum CMAPs in comparison with electrical stimulation were usually but not always found. CMAPs were at their maximum only when the direction of induced current flowed from proximal to distal… CONTINUE READING
