Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Studies in Alzheimer's Disease

Table 2

Motor cortex excitability parameters trend in patients examined. : basal evaluation, : 1 year after AchE-ib treatment, ADM: Abductor Digiti Minimi Muscle, ECD: Extensor Digitorum Communis Muscle, SD: standard deviation. The table shows the AchEI therapy effect was not significantly impacting on TMS parameters (Pillai’s trace = .996; F(5,5) = 2.440; ). Consistently, looking at single measures, the authors did not find any significant change ( for threshold, for ADM area, for ECD area, for ADM volume, for ECD volume) (modified from [14]).
