Abstract

After an electrical stimulus within the motor system there will follow a compulsion, a reflexlike process in functional dependency, naturally in illness (function disturbance) dependency as well. We can detect this process with the evoked potentials at the non-stimulated sites of the motor system and with the motor answers at the periphery. Because the motor system acts as a whole, it is certain that every process at a site has its correlates at the other sites, but the different part of the same process will be in a different grade pronounced (many times in opposite direction) at the different sites. If we want to know something from the basic process and to find the real correlates, we have to compare different evoked potentials within the motor system and motor responses at the periphery, or we have to enhance or depress the whole process or its parts. For the latter the double stimulation technique is suitable, but we have to take into consideration that during this investigation two alternating processes affect each other and therefore the result will not be direct.
