Cyclical excitability of the motor cortex in patients with catamenial epilepsy: A transcranial magnetic stimulation study

Abstract

PURPOSE The pathophysiology of catamenial epilepsy is still unclear. Therefore, we investigated the cortical excitability of women with catamenial epilepsy during different phases of the menstrual cycle. METHODS Using transcranial magnetic stimulation, six patients suffering from catamenial epilepsy were investigated during ovulatory cycles. On days 8… (More)
