The transcallosal connecting fibres linking corresponding projection areas of the same muscles of the right and left primary motor cortex may play an important role in control of unilateral movements. It appears that they have mainly inhibitory effects. This was further evaluated by transcranial magnetic stimulation using two focal coils placed on the optimal positions, i.e. the positions with the lowest thresholds at the motor representation areas of the first dorsal interosseous muscle of the… CONTINUE READING
