Abstract

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a still relatively new method to stimulate the human cortex painlessly and non-invasively. In the neurophysiological routine situation, TMS was and is still used mainly for measurement of the central motor conduction time in order to evaluate the integrityof the corticospinal tract. Methodological improvement and innovation has now opened numerous opportunities for novel applications. This review will describe techniques to measure exactly central conduction block and fractionated conduction time along restricted segments of the corticospinal tract. Furthermore, several protocols will be discussed that allow the measurement of motor cortical and corticospinal excitability. The value of these novel techniques will be demonstrated by a survey of the available data in neurological patients.
