Özet

Hand motor representation area expands towards the area of the perioral facial motor cortex in patients with peripheral facial paralysis (PFP) and in hemifacial spasm cases treated with botulinum toxin. In this current study, we aimed to investigate the changes both in the ipsilateral and contralateral facial motor cortex areas in patients with PFP with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
