Laboratory of Cerebral Dynamics
This laboratory studies the ability of the brain to undergo structural and functional reorganization following early brain damage. In addition to anatomical and behavioral assessments, the functional organization of the brain is also studied using temporary deactivation provided by cooling or transcranial magnetic stimulation in both animal and human models.
|A Novel Approach for Documenting Phosphenes Induced by Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
|Phosphenes are transient percepts of light that can be induced by applying Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to visually sensitive regions of cortex. We demonstrate a standard protocol for determining the phosphene threshold value and introduce a novel method for quantifying and analyzing perceived phosphenes.|
