Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can produce effects not only at the site of stimulation but also at distant sites to which it projects. Here we examined the connection between supplementary motor area (SMA) and the hand area of the primary motor cortex (M1(Hand)) by testing whether prolonged repetitive TMS (rTMS) over the SMA can produce changes in excitability of the M1(Hand) after the end of the stimulus train. We evaluated motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) and the cortical silent period… CONTINUE READING
