Transcranial magnetic stimulation

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


    TMS can provide maps of reactivity and connectivity. Magnetic stimulation can be used to influence the brain in order to test scientific hypotheses or to obtain diagnostic information. TMS appears to become also a major therapeutic modality, although much work needs to be done to verify results obtained so far. With many new paradigms to come, the future of TMS as a brain mapping tool seems very bright.
