Research into mechanisms for inducing long-lasting increases in human motor system excitability holds great promise for two prime reasons. First, the research may provide a better understanding of the role of cortex in human movement. Second, an induced increase in the excitability of the motor system during walking re-training following neural injury may emerge as a valuable therapeutic adjunct. The present study applied paired associative stimulation (PAS) to healthy humans during walking… CONTINUE READING
