Cerebral Cortical Influences on Autonomic Function

Study Description

Cerebral Cortical Influences on Autonomic Function

This is an exploratory neurophysiological study that will determine the impact of non-invasive brain stimulation on autonomic regulation, with a focus on gastrointestinal function. These studies should provide a basis for future brain-based neurotherapeutic strategies in patients with functional GI disorders.

Device - rTMS

In subsequent sessions, the same measures of autonomic activity and MEPs will be monitored but different patterns of repetitive TMS (rTMS) will be applied to motor cortex or other areas before the test meal, water or nutrient drink is consumed.
