This syllabus discusses the usefulness of navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) as a brain imaging tool in stroke patients. TMS assessment of the motor tract function and walking ability over time in stroke patients with poor or non-existent initial gait is in the focus. Main data is derived from twenty-seven patients, first assessed one week post-stroke, and followed up for six months. Outcome measure in these patients was walking ability. Motor evoked potentials (MEP) in lower limbs early on predicted better physical functioning at 3 weeks and at 6 months in all patients (p<0.05). The value of MEP amplitudes and latencies in assessing the descending motor pathways in different stages of stroke recovery is discussed.
