Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the supplementary motor area (SMA) degrades bimanual movement control in humans.

Abstract:

Moving the upper limbs at a common tempo according to an in-phase or anti-phase mode represents elementary coordination dynamics. Previously, the role of the supplementary motor area (SMA) has been emphasized for successful production of these patterns. The objective of this study was to investigate whether repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the SMA at 5 Hz can interfere with these isofrequency configurations in the post-stimulation stage. Results showed a deterioration of...
