TMSmap - software for quantitative analysis of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) brain mapping results 

     We developed TMSmap software as a standalone graphical interface software for the quantitative analysis of the results of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) mapping. The software allows to consider not only standard parameters like the size of the cortical muscle representation and hotspot and center of gravity (CoG) location, but as well the volume of the representation considering the amplitude of MEPs in each stimulation spot, the shape of the area, the profile/landscape of the muscle cortical representation and the overlap between representations. Earth mover’s distance (EMD) metric is implemented into the software for maps profiles comparison. Please see the article for more details.
     Software is distributed under a freeware license: one can download, install and use it free of charge. Please cite this article (doi: 10.3389/fnhum.2018.00239) if you use the software.
