  1. aStudy of the modulation of the excitability of the motor cortex following repetitive stimulation of the contralateral sciatic nerve;
  2. bCerebello-cortical inhibition following high-frequency stimulation of the cerebellar cortex and following transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)
  3. cStudy of the ratios F waves/M response following stimulation of the left tibial nerve and recording in the plantaris muscle
