Question Previous TMS studies have shown that attention-regulated changes in posterior brain rhythms are under FEF control (Capotosto, JNeurosci 2009) and that FEF-TMS affects the probability of perceiving phosphenes (Silvanto, JNeurophysiol 2006). However the oscillatory nature of the latter changes has never been examined. Here we specifically tested whether FEF-TMS causes visual cortex excitability to phase align at the frequency of brain rhythms. Methods To this end we used bifocal TMS. The… CONTINUE READING
