Soto-Leon1, P. Profice2, G. Foffani1, A. Oliviero1 1Hospital Nacional de Paraplejicos, FENNSI, Toledo, Spain; 2Univeritá Cattolica, Neurology Department, Rome, Italy Objective: To study the effect of transcranial static magnetic field stimula- tion (tSMS) over the parietal cortex on the size of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) in humans. Methods: SEPs were elicited by electrical stimulation of right median nerve at the wrist before, during and after tSMS (or sham) in 8 healthy subjects. tSMS was applied for 20 min to the left parietal cortex using a neodimium cylindric magnet with a diameter of 6 cm and height of 3 cm. Sham stimulation was obtained by applying …
