LI was calculated considering contralateral (ipsilesional) ERD as the C3 ERD value over the left sensorimotor area
and ipsilateral (contralesional) ERD as the C4 ERD over the right sensorimotor area
Furthermore, we also found a positive correlation between the brain activity in the ipsilesional sensorimotor area
and RMT of ipsilesional M1, which implied that the more recruited ipsilesional sensorimotor motor cortex, the less decreased motor cortical excitability of the ipsilesional hemisphere.

Several studies have used this technique to either examine cortical map shifts in sensorimotor areas
after spontaneous recovery or different therapeutical applications [21-24] or used the stimulation itself as a method to increase plastic processes .
Oscillatory patterns in the beta-range of sensorimotor areas
may therefore provide cortical signatures relevant to circuit dysfunction.
During simple activities, such as finger tapping "the basic network consists of a relatively simple array of auditory and sensorimotor areas
The reduced areas are sensorimotor areas
and may follow the principle of parsimony .
