Electroencephalography data indicate that collateral modulations of posterior α-activity, the momentary bias of visuospatial attention, and imminent visual processing are linked, and suggest that the Momentary direction of attention, predicting spatial biases in imminent visualprocessing, can be estimated from a lateralization index of posterior β-activity.

Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation of prefrontal cortex enhances working memory
The results indicate that left prefrontal anodal stimulation leads to an enhancement of working memory performance, which depends on the stimulation polarity and is specific to the site of stimulation.

Trans transcranial magnetic stimulation is used to study the role of plastic changes of the human motor system in the acquisition of new fine motor skills and the effect of increased hand use without specific skill learning in subjects who played the piano at will for 2 h each day but who were not taught the five-finger exercise.
Activation of the primary visual cortex by Braille reading in blind subjects
In blind subjects, cortical areas normally reserved for vision may be activated by other sensory modalities, and positron emission tomography was used to determine whether the visual cortex receives input from the somatosensory system.
Diminishing Reciprocal Fairness by Disrupting the Right Prefrontal Cortex
It is shown that disruption of the right, but not the left, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) by low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation substantially reduces subjects' willingness to reject their partners' intentionally unfair offers, which suggests that subjects are less able to resist the economic temptation to accept these offers.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation in neurology
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Historical and technical aspects of TMS are reviewed, its adverse effects and how to avoid them are described, the applications of T MS in the investigation of different cerebral functions are summarized, and the possibility of using TMS for the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders is discussed.
