Abstract

To test whether low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of sensorimotor cortex (SM1) has prolonged effects on somatosensory function, eight subjects were given 900 TMS pulses over the left hand SMI (0.9Hz, 90% of the resting motor threshold) or at sites 3 cm anterior or posterior to it. Tactile threshold of the right hand was increased for a short duration after rTMS over SM1, but two-point discrimination and median nerve SEPs were unaffected after rTMS at any sites.
