OBJECTIVE To explore the spatial and temporal characteristics of the modulation of corticospinal and segmental excitability during actual and imagined movement of a single digit. METHODS Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), motor evoked potentials (MEPs) were evoked in abductor pollicis brevis (APB) and abductor digiti minimi (ADM) of the dominant hand in 8 subjects, while they either rested, isometrically contracted their thenar muscles in time with a 1 Hz metronome, or imagined… CONTINUE READING
