OBJECTIVE This study was designed to examine whether exhaustive grip exercise of the left hand affected intracortical excitability in ipsilateral motor cortex. METHODS Ten healthy male subjects (aged 21-24 years) participated in experiment 1 in which paired-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was used to test corticospinal and corticocortical excitability in right (relaxed) first dorsal interosseous (FDI) muscle during the recovery period after exhaustive forceful grip exercise of… CONTINUE READING
