Previous studies have clearly shown that motor imagery modulates corticospinal excitability. However, there is no clear evidence for the modulation of intracortical inhibition (ICI) during imagined task performance. The aim of this study was to use transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to assess changes in corticospinal excitability and ICI during the imagined performance of two types of task. In Experiment 1, eight subjects performed phasic depression of a computer mouse button using the… CONTINUE READING
