Transcranial stimulation of motor cortex in upper motor neurone syndrome: its relation to the motor deficit.

The purpose of this investigation was to clarify the functional significance of the fastest cortico-motoneuronal connections in chronic upper motor neurone syndromes. Using magneto-electrical stimulation of motor cortex the intactness of cortico-motoneuronal connections was assessed in 51 patients presenting with variable degrees of impairment. There was a… CONTINUE READING
