Transcranial magnetic stimulation of the motor cortex and percutaneous magnetic stimulation of the peripheral nervous structures in the dog


Heckmann, Rudolf; Hess, C W; Hogg, H P; Ludin, H P; Wiestner, Thomas (1989). Transcranial magnetic stimulation of the motor cortex and percutaneous magnetic stimulation of the peripheral nervous structures in the dog. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 131(6):341-350.

Abstract

The motor cortex was transcranially and peripheral nervous structures (motor roots, plexus, peripheral nerves) were percutaneously stimulated by magnetic pulses in awake dogs and in dogs awaking from general anesthesia. The compound muscle action potentials were recorded by surface or needle electrodes. The central motor conduction time as an information about central motor tracts was obtained by subtracting the peripheral latency from the corticomuscular latency. The peripheral latency was assessed by high voltage electrical and magnetic stimulation of motor roots and by the F-wave technique. The motor conduction velocity of the tibial nerve was measured by percutaneous magnetic and by electrical stimulation and the resulting values were compared.
