  • Purpose To validate a novel setup for concurrent TMS/fMRI in the human motor cortex based on a dedicated, ultra‐thin, multichannel receive MR coil positioned between scalp and TMS system providing greatly enhanced sensitivity compared to the standard birdcage coil setting. Methods A combined TMS/fMRI design was applied over the primary motor cortex based on 1 Hz stimulation with stimulation levels of 80%, 90%, 100%, and 110% of the individual active motor threshold, respectively. Due to the use… CONTINUE READING
