Abstract

The purpose of this study was to reveal whether the stepping-related afferent feedback modulates the motor evoked potentials (MEPs) in the wrist flexor muscle in humans. MEPs generated in flexor carpi radialis muscle (FCR) by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) were recorded during robotic-assisted passive stepping and standing conditions. TMS were applied at fifteen scalp sites (3 × 5 cm grid in anterior-posterior direction and medial-lateral direction, respectively) centered on the hot spot which was defined as an optimal site for eliciting the MEP in FCR during passive standing task, The MEP amplitudes were measured for each stimulus sites, and then compared between different conditions. During passive stepping, the MEP amplitudes in FCR muscle were significantly increased in six adjacent stimulus sites of the hot spot, This result suggests that stepping-related afferent feedback induces expansion of excitatory area in motor cortex for FCR muscle.
