OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of a passive wrist movement intervention on cortical representation of forearm musculature. METHODS Transcranial magnetic stimulation was used to map cortical representation of a forearm flexor muscle in healthy individuals and in individuals following stroke before and immediately after a 30 min session of passive wrist movement. RESULTS In the healthy individuals, no changes in map area or map centre of gravity were noted after the intervention; however… CONTINUE READING
