Abstract:
This thesis explores the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on conscious perception and visual processing. Chapter 1 addresses issues of experimental design. Two broad classes of TMS intervention were used and are reported in separate chapters. Chapter 2 involves repetitive ‘off-line’ TMS combined with neuroimaging techniques. Chapter 3 employs ‘on-line’ TMS applied with temporal specificity to track the passage of information through early visual cortex. Chapter 4 is a general discussion primarily concerned with the issues encountered experiments oriented towards consciousness.
