原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Objectives(#br)Alexithymia is a multicomponent personality construct that could occur in up to 53% of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), with recent works proposing higher rates of alexithymia in progressive MS. Among the available models of alexithymia, some propose a deficient interhemispheric communication and an aberrant GABAergic transmission at its origin. However, no single study has addressed the underlying physiological mechanisms of alexithymia in MS. The aim of this work was to assess the relationship between GABAergic neurotransmission and alexithymia in progressive MS by means of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).(#br)Methods(#br)Twelve patients with high alexithymia and fifteen patients with low alexithymia were included based on Toronto Alexithymia...
