Effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation of the posterior parietal cortex on saccades and vergence.

Abstract

Previous studies showed that transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the posterior parietal cortex (PPC) prolongs the latency of intentional saccades. We examined whether a similar effect exists for reflexive saccades and vergence. To elicit reflexive movements, a gap paradigm was used; lateral saccades and vergence along the median plane were… (More)
