Inspiratory loading in awake humans is associated with electroencephalographic signs of supplementary motor area (SMA) activation. To provide evidence for a functional connection between SMA and the diaphragm representation in the primary motor cortex (M1(DIA)), we tested the hypothesis that modulating SMA activity using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) would alter M1(DIA) excitability. Amplitude and latency of diaphragm motor evoked potentials (MEP(DIA)), evoked through… CONTINUE READING
