Noninvasive associative plasticity induction in a corticocortical pathway of the human brain.

Abstract:

Coincident pairing of presynaptic and postsynaptic activity selectively strengthens synaptic connections, a key mechanism underlying cortical plasticity. Using paired associative transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), we demonstrate selective potentiation of physiological connectivity between two human brain regions, ventral premotor cortex (PMv) and primary motor cortex (M1) after repeated paired-pulse TMS of PMv and M1. The effect was anatomically specific: paired stimulation of the presu...
