Abstract

We have demonstrated that magnetic pulse stimulation of the sensorimotor cortex suppresses perception of threshold electrical stimuli to the fingers of the contralateral hand. Maximum suppression of perception occurs when the fingers are stimulated 30-90 msec after the magnetic pulse. Thereafter, errors in perception of the cutaneous stimulus decrease to control levels by 300-400 msec after the magnetic pulse. The period of maximum suppression of perception coincides with the period during which cortically generated somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) are enhanced following magnetic pulse stimulation of the brain. The duration of suppression of perception, however, outlasts the duration of SEP enhancement. When the magnetic pulse is delivered after finger stimulation there is also suppression of perception. The suppression of perception is maximal when the magnetic pulse occurs 20-30 msec after finger stimulation. This interval coincides with the arrival of the afferent volley at the primary sensory cortex.
