The Effects of Trancranial Magnetic Stimulation Multichannel Stimulator on Motor Excitation

2014-08-27 03:16:58 | BioPortfolio


Our aim is to Test the influence of a new multichanel Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation stimulator (Multiway) on motor excitation, in comparision to a wildly used Magstim Super Rapid 2 single channel stimulator.

Each of the 20 Healthy subjects that are inticipated to inrole to the study wiil undergo 6 simple procedures which are designed to compare the motor threshold obtained by diffrent combination of TMs coils (figure 8, double cone coil,H coil array) and stimulators (Multiway, Super Rapid 2).

The entire length of the procedures is about 4 hours and all subjects will be paid for their participation in the study.

Our main hypothesis is that the motor threshold obtained by the multichanel stimulator will be significtly lower then the single chanel stimulator.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A B7 antigen that binds specifically to INDUCIBLE T-CELL CO-STIMULATOR PROTEIN on T-CELLS. It provides a costimulatory signal for T-cell proliferation and cytokine secretion.

A costimulatory receptor that is specific for INDUCIBLE T-CELL CO-STIMULATOR LIGAND. The receptor is associated with a diverse array of immunologically-related effects including the increased synthesis of INTERLEUKIN 10 in REGULATORY T-LYMPHOCYTES and the induction of PERIPHERAL TOLERANCE.

An immunoglobulin G, often found in the blood of hyperthyroid individuals. It stimulates the thyroid for a longer duration than does thyrotoxin and may cause hyperthyroidism in newborns due to placental transmission.

Artificial device such as an externally-worn camera attached to a stimulator on the RETINA, OPTIC NERVE, or VISUAL CORTEX, intended to restore or amplify vision.

A gastrointestinal peptide hormone of about 43-amino acids. It is found to be a potent stimulator of INSULIN secretion and a relatively poor inhibitor of GASTRIC ACID secretion.
