Several recent studies with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) have demonstrated changes in motor evoked potentials (MEPs) in human limb muscles following modulation of sensory afferent inputs, but little is known about the regulation of the human tongue motor control. To test the effect of local anesthesia (LA) of the lingual nerve and topical application of capsaicin stimulation on tongue MEPs. Fourteen volunteers participated (21–30 years) in two randomized sessions; before, during a… CONTINUE READING
