Non-invasive associative plasticity induction in a cortico-cortical pathway of the human brain

Abstract:

Associative plasticity, which involves modification of synaptic strength by coactivation of two synaptic inputs, has been demonstrated in many species. Here I explore whether it is possible to induce associative plasticity within a corticocortical pathway in the human brain using a novel protocol that activates two brain areas repeatedly with double-site transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The pathway between ventral premotor cortex (PMv) and primary motor cortex (M1) which computes h...
