    Notes: Summary The effect of the glutamate antagonist riluzole on excitatory and inhibitory phenomena in the human motor system was studied by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and peripheral electrical nerve stimulation. The motor threshold, the intracortical inhibition and intracortical facilitation as assessed by paired TMS, the cortical and peripheral silent periods, F wave amplitudes and F wave latencies were measured. Riluzole suppressed the intracortical facilitation whereas other parameters remained unchanged, indicating that the neurotransmitter glutamate is mainly involved in facilitatory mechanisms in the motor system.
