OBJECTIVE Externally induced neuroplasticity may be of therapeutic value in several neuro-psychiatric disorders. To facilitate research on mechanisms and to make possible the design of prospective, advanced stimulation protocols without exposing human subjects to risk, we have developed a primate model which allows us to assess changes of motor cortical excitability using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). METHODS TMS hand muscle representation and cortical excitability were determined… CONTINUE READING
