Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
In TMS a small but very powerful magnet is held close to the participant's scalp; the magnetic field passes through the skull or cranium and temporarily disrupts the functioning of the cortical region directly below the magnet. After a brief introduction you will see a video clip that demonstrates the effects of TMS on Broca's Area, and will be presented with follow up thought questions.
