Virtual Dyscalculia Induced by Parietal-Lobe TMS Impairs Automatic Magnitude Processing
People suffering from developmental dyscalculia encounter difficulties in automatically accessing numerical magnitudes [1-3]. For example, when instructed to attend to the physical size of a numberExpand

Dissociating cognitive from affective theory of mind: A TMS study
INTRODUCTION "Theory of Mind" (ToM), i.e., the ability to infer other persons' mental states, is a key function of social cognition. It is increasingly recognized to form a multidimensionalExpand
