Objectives: This study was designed to search potential changes in trigemino-facial system in blind subjects by the use of relatively well-established electrophysiological methods. Excitability changes in the motor cortex were also investigated by transcranial magnetic stimulation studies (TMS) with the expectation of finding some abnormal interactions between the cortex and brainstem.
