Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) non-invasively measures excitability of central motor pathways in humans and is used to characterize neuroplasticity after stroke. Using TMS to index lower extremity neuroplasticity after gait rehabilitation requires test-retest reliability. This study assesses the reliability of TMS-derived variables measured at bilateral quadriceps of chronic hemiparetic stroke survivors. Results support using measures of both paretic and nonparetic motor threshold, motor evoked potential (MEP) latencies; and nonparetic MEP amplitudes. Implications for longitudinal research are discussed.
