It is well known that transcranial stimulation, delivered during sustained muscle contraction, evokes a temporary suppression of motor activity (silent period). The aim of the present study was to further analyze this inhibition in 20 healthy subjects and in 10 patients with previous stroke. Transcranial magnetic stimulation was performed at the vertex, recording responses from first dorsal interosseus (FDI) muscle. Normative data were provided from the control group. The results indicate a… CONTINUE READING
