A recently published study used the interference strategy of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to demonstrate the role of the right posterior parietal cortex (PPC) in the mental rotation of alphanumeric stimuli. We used similar stimulation parameters over the same left and right PPC regions, and examined the ability to rotate more complex 3D Shepard and Metzler (1971) images. There was reduced accuracy of performance with both right and left PPC stimulation for different angles of… CONTINUE READING
