Single and paired-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) were applied to the motor cortex of 12 healthy volunteers, who were instructed to relax under eyes-open and eyes-closed conditions with room lights on and after 30 min of blindfolding. Compared to the eyes-open condition, significantly larger motor-evoked potentials and less intracortical inhibition were observed during blindfolding. Visual deafferentation changes resting human motor cortex excitability and might be a novel way to… CONTINUE READING
