In a previous transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) study we demonstrated that suprathreshold mesh-glove (MG) whole-hand stimulation elicits lasting changes in motor cortical excitability. Currently, there is no consensus with regard to the optimal parameters for the induction of sensorimotor cortical plasticity using peripheral electrical stimulation. Thus, in the present study we explore the modulatory effects of MG stimulation at different stimulus intensities and different frequencies in order to identify an optimal stimulation protocol.
