Abstract: Physiological probe? Yes. Virtual lesion? Sometimes. Entrainer of rhythms? Probably not.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a remarkably flexible tool that has been applied productively to many different scientific and clinical problems. My group’s experience with TMS, however, indicates that the actual effects of TMS, whether considered from the standpoint of its effects on the physiology of individual brains, or from the standpoint of its effects on aggregate patterns of behavior, don’t always conform to a priori notions about how it “should” work. This talk will consider many applications of TMS – as a physiological probe, as a means of creating virtual lesions (in both “offline” and “online” applications), and as a putative tool for entrainment – and, in each type of application, use concurrently collected physiological signals (from electroencephalography (EEG) or from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)) to empirically inform our ideas about how TMS can, and, in some cases, how it probably cannot, influence brain functioning and behavior.
