Human cortical somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) can be modified by concomitant motor tasks ('gating'), through peripheral occlusion and/or central mechanisms. The present study aimed (1) at refining earlier results concerning motor-gating of the primary cortical EPSP-related N20 response after electric median nerve stimulation, and (2) at providing first data on motor-gating of the 600 Hz SEP wavelet burst which occurs superimposed onto N20 and primarily reflects repetitive cerebral… CONTINUE READING
