The prefrontal cortex plays an important role in central motor control. We have examined whether prefrontal repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) induces changes of motor cortex excitability determined by motor evoked potentials (MEPs) following single-pulse TMS. We studied 18 healthy volunteers stimulated at 5 Hz with 10% subthreshold prefrontal vs. occipital rTMS for 12 s. MEPs from the flexor carpi radialis muscle after single-pulse vertex stimulation were recorded during rTMS… CONTINUE READING
