Magnetic stimulation done with a double cone coil placed over the back of the head activated descending motor pathways and produced electromyographic responses in muscles of the arms and legs. The latencies of these responses were the same as those of responses to electrical brainstem stimulation. The threshold was lowest when the coil was placed over the inion or below it on the median line. Placement of the coil on the side ipsilateral to the muscle was more effective than placement on the… CONTINUE READING
