Priming the pump? Evaluating the effect of multiple intermittent theta burst sessions on cortical excitability in a nonhuman primate model

Priming the pump? Evaluating the effect of multiple intermittent theta burst sessions on cortical excitability in a nonhuman primate model
Leveraging preclinical knowledge regarding the role of hippocampal theta burst stimulation in learning and memory, in 2005 Huang and colleagues were the first to apply an intermittent bursting form of transcranial magnetic stimulation (theta burst stimulation, iTBS) to the human cortex [1]. Intermittent TBS increased cortical excitability in a manner that was more temporally efficient than non-bursting stimulation protocols. This manuscript has now been cited more than 3100 times and TBS may now be the dominant stimulation protocol of interest in the TMS field. ... read more
