Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for cognitive neurosciences: applications and open questions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) proved to be a valuable technique for the investigation of neural bases of cognitive and affective functions. Based on a reasoned recognition of available relevant literature, we have summarized the most consistent findings concerning TMS studies on attention and executive functions, memory, language, emotion processing, and social perception and behaviour. Besides such conceptual systematization, the discussion also focuses on methodological critical issues, open questions, and potential implications for future research.
