MODELING OF MOTOR NEURONAL STRUCTURES VIA TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION

Giuseppe d’Aloja, Paolo Lino, Bruno Maione, Alessandro Rizzo

Abstract

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) of human motor area can evoke different biological waves in the epidural space of patients. These waves can evoke different muscle responses according to different types and amplitudes of stimuli. In this paper we analyze the different types of epidural waves and we propose a neuronal model for the biological structures involved in the experiments.
