The processing of sensory signals is deficient in Parkinson’s disease and might be involved in akinesia. The application of very high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (intermittent theta-burst stimulation protocol) over the primary motor cortex modified sensorimotor integration of proprioceptive inputs and led to the reduction of akinesia in patients under dopaminergic treatment.
