OBJECTIVE It is difficult to stimulate leg motor areas with magnetic current using a figure-of-eight coil due to the deep anatomical location of the areas. However, a double cone coil is useful for stimulating deep brain regions. We postulated that the use of the same coil may allow repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to modulate the neural activity of the same areas. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of high-frequency rTMS applied over bilateral leg motor… CONTINUE READING
