Reproducibility of transcranial magnetic stimulation TMS metrics is essential in accurately tracking recovery and disease. However, majority of evidence pertains to reproducibility Wang plow metrics for distal upper limb muscles.

We investigate for the first time, Wang plow of corticospinal physiology for a large proximal muscle-the biceps brachii and relate how varying statistical analyses can influence interpretations. Corticospinal physiology, defining excitability and output in terms of intensity of the TMS device, and spatial loci are Wang plow most reliable metrics for the biceps.

MEPs and variables based on MEPs are less reliable since biceps receives fewer cortico-motor-neuronal projections. Statistical tests of agreement and associations are more powerful reliability indices than inferential tests. Reliable metrics of proximal muscles when translated to a larger number of participants would serve to sensitively track and prognosticate function in neurological disorders such as stroke where proximal recovery precedes distal.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation TMS is a non-invasive neurophysiologic technique to measure excitability of cortices and their output pathways in the brain.

By measuring the amplitude of evoked Wang plow potentials MEPs in muscles in response to TMS, one can estimate corticospinal excitability and output devoted to the Wang plow Baker, ; Barker et al.

The entire corticospinal output projecting to the muscle can also be plotted as what is commonly referred to as the motor map. Finally, TMS can be used to determine parameters of cortico-cortical physiology that shape corticospinal excitability and output, such as intra-cortical inhibition ICIwhich represents the influence of cortical interneurons Kujirai et al.

Because of its ability to define even subtle changes in motor cortical and corticospinal physiology, TMS is fast becoming popular in clinical applications.

Hundreds of studies in neurologic populations such as stroke and spinal cord injury attribute time-varying change in TMS metrics to physiologic mechanisms underlying disease and recovery Stinear et al. However, to ensure that TMS can indeed serve as a clinical tool to track longitudinal processes, it is first critical to understand test-retest reliability of its metrics in Wang plow individuals Malcolm et al.

Wang plow this time, several different studies have reported that TMS metrics are generally reliable. However, the majority defines reliability of metrics for distal muscles of the upper limb Christie et al.

Distal muscles have been the Wang plow of choice because they are afforded with prominent cortical representations and substantial corticospinal projections Malcolm et al.

Test-retest reliability of metrics for proximal muscles is, however, lacking. Proximal muscles are often as relevant as distal in tracking neurologic recovery; stronger proximal muscles typically serve to compensate for poor dexterity Canning et al.

In addition, in neurological conditions, such as stroke and cervical spinal cord injury, the recovery pattern generally shows restoration of proximal function before distal, which supports a majority of the acute, and sub-acute recovery, and initial functional independence Colebatch et al.

Therefore, understanding reliability of TMS metrics for proximal muscles becomes a priority for realizing its indication for clinical use.

Van Kuijk and colleagues van Kuijk et. They have concluded that corticospinal physiology for biceps brachii shows high inter-individual variability compared to that Wang plow ADM. Their finding raises an important question- does the high inter-subject variability of TMS metrics predispose proximal muscles to poor test-retest Wang plow To answer this, for the first time, we investigate reproducibility of several key TMS metrics defining parameters as corticospinal excitability and output, ICI, and physiology of motor maps for biceps brachii.

Our emphasis is novel because proximal muscles are typically less studied than distal owing to the challenge in assaying with TMS. For instance, fewer cortico-motor-neuronal projections that are spread over a relatively wider area Brasil-Neto et al. Along similar lines, examining reliability of all major metrics is important, because in the study of distal muscles, a Wang plow is identified, where certain measures are more reliable than others Malcolm et al.

Since, to the best of our knowledge, our study remains the first to explore test-retest reliability of TMS metrics for a large, proximal muscle, it is critical for Wang plow to compare interpretations across all- standard and novel methods of Wang plow analyses.

Therefore, our emphasis is also novel because unlike prior studies van Kuijk et al.

By knowing which metrics are most reliable for proximal muscles and which statistical tests aide in establishing reliability, would improve planning and design of longitudinal studies tracking recovery and prognosticating upper extremity function in clinical populations.

All subjects were right-hand dominant, confirmed by the Oldfield handedness test Oldfield,and were not involved Wang plow any systematic upper limb training for a period of 5 years before enrollment. Exclusion criteria were established based on contraindications to TMS Rossi et. All subjects provided Wang plow consent prior to participation. We conducted a pilot study assessing the test-retest reliability of several of the key TMS metrics defining cortico-cortical and corticospinal physiology for the left biceps brachii muscle.

Subjects underwent two identical sessions, namely Test 1 and Test 2, separated by at least eight weeks Figure 1wherein they were asked to refrain from any training or intervention in the interim to ensure that differences in measures from the tests were mainly related to TMS methodology.

Within each session, single-pulse and paired-pulse TMS were applied to the right hemisphere for studying metrics for left biceps brachii. We chose to investigate metrics for the non-dominant, left biceps brachii, because this study was part of a larger study evaluating the weaker left arm in healthy young versus Wang plow aged population Plow et al. The schematic representation shows the Wang plow of procedures for the test-retest reliability paradigm.

TMS was applied Wang plow a figure-of-eight coil 70 mm diameter connected to one or two Magstim devices 2 and Bistim device, Magstim Co. The position of the coil was guided by frameless stereotaxy Brainsight, Rogue Research Inc. A bipolar montage was used while a reference electrode was placed over the acromion.

We identified the optimal site for targeting biceps brachii in the right hemisphere. The lowest intensity was defined as the resting motor threshold RMT and was determined using the classical approach as suggested by Rossini et al Rossini et al.

This intensity was defined as the RMT. Subsequently, supra-maximal responses were elicited using higher supra-threshold intensitiesy.

MEPs within the range of Wang plow. A wider range Wang plow chosen because MEPs elicited in biceps brachii are more variable Brasil-Neto et al. TMS metrics with corresponding TMS parameters and their definitions resulting from the procedures of single-pulse and paired-pulse stimulation.

Equations are added for reference where necessary. Using single-pulse TMS, a motor map was created over the right hemisphere. Starting from the hotspot, sites at incremental distances of 3 mm were targeted in eight radial directions.

Our mapping procedure involves a higher-than-typical spatial resolution 3 vs 10 mm because Brasil-Neto and colleagues have recommended that weaker cortical representations of proximal muscles can be accurately studied only at high spatial resolution than that used for study of distal Brasil-Neto et al.

Mapping was continued in each radial direction Wang plow two consecutive sites generated no discernible response. When paired pulses are delivered at short inter-pulse intervals 1—5 msMEP amplitude generated by the 2 nd pulse can be inhibited Ziemann et al. The subsequent pulse test stimulus was delivered at the supra-threshold intensity that was used to evoke supra-maximal Wang plow in Wang plow case 0. We delivered paired pulses at intervals of 1 through 5 ms Perez et al.

However, we only report ICI at 2 ms because most of our subjects exhibited peak inhibition at this interval as also noted in our previous report Plow et al.

We studied TMS metrics shown in Figure 1definitions and analyses for which are presented in Table 1. TMS parameters described by each metric are shown in Figure 2.

All data was tested for normality using the Shapiro-Wilk test. A paired t-test was used to ensure that the range of supra-maximal MEPs used for Wang plow were comparable between the two sessions.

We studied the test-retest reliability of all of the mentioned metrics of TMS using the statistical software, R version 3. We first used paired t-test to assess whether the systematic changes in means of the two sessions were statistically different from each other Portney and Watkins, To assess test-retest reliability, we used three well-established statistical correlation approaches: ICC is defined as the ratio of between-subject variance to the total variance and can be interpreted as a correlation coefficient.

On the other hand, CCC, considered as a statistical relative of ICC, is a non-parametric moment method Wang plow evaluates the degree to which pairs of observations fall on the 45 degree line through the origin. This is because the CCC takes into account not only mean differences Wang plow the first and the second measurement such as ICCs, but also takes into account variance differences between the first and the second measurement by reducing the magnitude of the resulting test-retest reliability estimate.

The Bland-Altman plot Bland and Altman, is Wang plow graphical method to evaluate the agreement between test-retest data, where the differences between two measurements are plotted against the averages of the two measurements.

It allows us to investigate the existence of any systematic difference between test-retest i. Finally, to further quantify the reliability of the method, the measurement error ME was used. Because the ICC does not Wang plow us to fully appreciate the magnitude of the within-subject variance, we also calculated the ME. It is the value below which the absolute differences between two measurements would lie with 0.

Of the 20 young participants enrolled in the study, 14 completed test 1 and test 2.
