Several research groups within the
Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences and Institute
of Cognitive Neuroscience use TMS as a fundamental tool in their research programmes:
- Dr. Joseph Devlin (CPB).
I use TMS to help identify the neural information processing
characteristics of specific neuro-anatomical regions and how they
interact to produce complex, cognitive behaviours such as
language. My group uses a variety of on-line and off-line
TMS approaches including "virtual lesion" paradigms, chronometric
studies, and more recently, physiological connectivity studies
as well. My research focuses on several aspects of language
including reading, semantic and phonological processing,
morphological processing, and some speech perception.
