OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of magnetic coil orientation on the excitation of the median nerve in healthy subjects. METHODS An 8-shaped coil, 3.2 cm in outer diameter, was used. The median nerve was stimulated at the elbow while the compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) of abductor pollicis brevis muscle were recorded at 4 different… CONTINUE READING
