Spatial changes of the motor cortical representation of the biceps brachii muscle (stump muscle) were studied in ten patients with long-standing amputations at the level of the forearm. Motor output maps were established by focal transcranial magnetic stimulation on a skull surface grid overlying the motor cortex. Characteristics of the motor output map were its spatial extension (number of effective stimulation sites), the maximal response amplitude and the center of gravity (COG) of the… CONTINUE READING
