was the same as those previously reported. In QPS, 360 trains of 4 monophasic magnetic pulses were applied over the contralateral primary motor cortex (M1). We used QPS5 (interstimulus interval (ISI) = 5 ms) and QPS50 (ISI = 50 ms) for inducing LTP/LTD like effects. The inter-train interval (ITI) was fixed at 5 seconds. Results: QPS5 did not induce significant LTP-like effects in HD patients. QPS50 was not able to induce LTD-like effects. Conclusions: QPS did not induce significant plastic… CONTINUE READING
