OBJECTIVE Our objective was to study the corticobulbar projections to neck muscles in cervical dystonia. DESIGN We compared both the motor evoked potentials and the electromyographic silent period after transcranial magnetic stimulation from sternocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles in a group of 13 patients with spasmodic torticollis with those of 20 healthy volunteers. RESULTS With the target muscle at rest, no changes of motor threshold, motor evoked potentials latency, and amplitude… CONTINUE READING
