BACKGROUND In patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), motor tasks are associated with increased activation of ipsilateral motor cortical areas. The authors examined the role of two ipsilateral motor areas during performance of a simple motor task in MS patients in relation to their motor impairment and CNS injury. METHODS Single pulses of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) were used to interfere transiently with neuronal processing in the contralateral (M1(CONTRA)) or ipsilateral (M1(IPSI… CONTINUE READING
