A magnetic transcranial conditioning stimulus given over the motor cortex at intensities below threshold for obtaining electromyographical (EMG) responses in active hand muscles can suppress responses evoked in the same muscles at rest by a suprathreshold magnetic test stimulus given 1–5 ms later. In order to define the mechanism of this inhibitory effect, we recorded descending volleys produced by single and paired magnetic transcranial stimulation of motor cortex through high cervical… CONTINUE READING
