OBJECTIVE To establish changes in corticospinal excitability with absent and partial body weight support (BWS), and determine test-retest reliability of motor evoked potentials (MEPs) recordings during stepping in healthy humans. METHODS The tibialis anterior (TA) and soleus MEPs during stepping at 0 and at 25 BWS were recorded in two experimental sessions in the same subjects. Transcranial magnetic stimulation was delivered randomly across the step cycle at 1.2×TA MEP resting threshold. The… CONTINUE READING
