    We assessed the effects of anodal/cathodal direct current stimulation (DCS) applied epidurally over the cerebellum. We studied the excitability of both the motor cortex and the anterior horn of the spinal cord in adult rats under continuous anesthesia. We also investigated the effects on the...

    Practice-dependent plasticity underlies motor learning in everyday life and motor relearning after lesions of the nervous system. Previous studies showed that practice-dependent plasticity is modifiable by neuromodulating transmitters such as norepinephrine (NE), dopamine (DA) or acetylcholine...

    Ten healthy subjects and two patients who had an electrode implanted into the cervical epidural space underwent repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS; 50 stimuli at 5 Hz at active motor threshold intensity) of the hand motor area. We evaluated intracortical inhibition before and...

    Although transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) activates a number of different neuron types in the cortex, the final output elicited in corticospinal neurones is surprisingly stereo typed. A single TMS pulse evokes a series of descending corticospinal volleys that are separated from each other...

    Dopaminergic neurons in the ventral tegmental area, the major midbrain nucleus projecting to the motor cortex, play a key role in motor skill learning and motor cortex synaptic plasticity. Dopamine D1 and D2 receptor antagonists exert parallel effects in the motor system: they impair motor skill...

    We investigated the properties of the neural response to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) applied over the human primary motor cortex. Consistent with our previous findings, single pulses of TMS induce a characteristic negative deflection at 45 ms (N45) and a transient oscillation in the...

    Previous studies demonstrated a reduction of motor cortical excitability through pharmacological NMDA receptor blockage. Interestingly, subanesthetic doses of racemic ketamine, a non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist, had no effects on intracortical excitability evoked by transcranial...

    Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) is a form of noninvasive brain stimulation and is capable of influencing brain oscillations and cortical networks. In humans, the endogenous oscillation frequency in sensorimotor areas peaks at 20 Hz. This beta-band typically occurs during...
