Cortical silent period in the tongue induced by transcranial magnetic stimulation.

Abstract

Cortical silent period (SP) of the limb muscles is thought to reflect the cortical excitability. However, the lingual SP has not been examined precisely even in normal subjects. We investigated SP in the tongue induced by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in 18 controls. Surface electrodes were placed on the lingual dorsum using a bipolar technique. A… (More)
