State-Dependent Cortical Synchronization Networks Revealed by TMS-EEG Recordings
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can noninvasively modulate cortical ongoing activity in the human brain. We investigated frequency-specific and state-dependent cortical network by analyzing how modulation of cortical ongoing activity at one cortical area is propagated to the rest of the brain by TMS-EEG recordings. We found frequency-specific and state-dependent changes in propagation of TMS-evoked phase resetting of cortical ongoing activity in the open eye condition and closed eye condition. We discussed the functional significance of state-dependent synchronization networks observed.
