The role of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in studies of vision, attention and cognition.

Stewart, L. and Ellison, A. and Walsh, V. and Cowey, A. (2001) 'The role of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in studies of vision, attention and cognition.', Acta psychologica., 107 (1-3). pp. 275-291.

Abstract

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can be conceptualized as a virtual lesion technique, capable of disrupting organized cortical activity, transiently and reversibly. The technique combines good spatial and temporal resolution and, moreover, because it represents an interference technique, can be said to have excellent functional resolution. The following is a review and discussion of the contribution which TMS has made to the study of vision, attention, development and plasticity and speech and language.
