To investigate whether a period of continuous theta burst stimulation (cTBS) over the supplementary motor area (SMA) induces cortical plasticity and thus improves bradykinesia in Parkinson’s disease (PD) in the medication ON and OFF state. In total, 26 patients with Parkinson’s disease were tested with both real and sham stimulation. The group was divided into an OFF-medication (4 females, mean age 65 years, disease duration 6 years) and an ON-medication group (7 females, mean age 61 years… CONTINUE READING
