OBJECTIVE Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) is a repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation paradigm which has effects on both excitatory and inhibitory intracortical pathways when applied at an intensity of 80% of active motor threshold. As intracortical inhibitory pathways have a lower threshold for activation than excitatory pathways, we sought to determine whether it was possible to selectively target cortical inhibitory circuitry by reducing the intensity of TBS to 70% of active motor… CONTINUE READING
