Publication Detail
Magnetic stimulation in studies of vision and attention
Abstract
This chapter shows that short lasting, reversible functional lesions can be safely produced in healthy humans, too, by means of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS thus establishes a novel method to associate animal studies with those on patients and to create a new discipline, experimental neuropsychology, in humans. The role of the parietal cortex in visual attention is a question of central concern. TMS has many uses in the vision sciences that demand the attention of researchers. The impact of learning and plasticity are good paradigms for studying cortical change and the potential for combining TMS with other neuroimaging techniques will widen the scope of its utility in the study of vision.
