Abstract BACKGROUND: Reliable recording of motor evoked potentials (MEPs) of the masseter muscle by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has proved more difficult than from facial or intrinsic hand muscles. Up to now it was unclear whether this difficulty was due to methodological and/or anatomical reasons.
