Conditioning magnetic stimulation of the cerebellum suppresses the motor cortex 5–8 ms later, probably through activation of cerebellar Purkinje cells, which inhibit the dentatothalamocortical pathway. To further characterize this pathway, we examined several factors that may modulate its excitability. We tested the effects of different test motor evoked potential (MEP) amplitudes, voluntary activation of the target muscle, and arm extension that required activation of proximal arm muscles… CONTINUE READING
