To investigate the facilitatory effect of thinking about movement on motor evoked potential (MEP) amplitude, we recorded MEPs in two test muscles during rest, with the subject thinking about contracting the test muscle but without subsequent contraction, and during 10% maximum voluntary contraction. Stimuli were delivered at 10% above resting motor threshold and at 90-100% stimulator output. H-reflexes, recorded in flexor carpi radialis, were obtained during rest and think conditions. MEP… CONTINUE READING
