There is increasing evidence that an involvement of central nervous system (CNS) can occur in several myopathies. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may represent a valuable tool for investigating important neurophysiological and pathophysiological aspects of cortical involvement in neuromuscular disorders. In this review paper we aimed to perform a systematic search of the studies employing TMS techniques in subjects suffering from myopathies.
