Interhemispheric inhibition (IHI) is an important mechanism to maximize the independent functioning of each hemisphere and is most likely mediated by transcallosal fibres. IHI can be investigated by paired pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) whereby, in half of the trials, a test stimulus (TS) over one hemisphere is preceded by a conditioning stimulus (CS) over the other hemisphere. Whereas various studies have investigated IHI in rest, less is known about interhemispheric… CONTINUE READING
