Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can serve as a tool to experimentally test hypotheses of prefrontal cortex (PFC) modulation of emotions. The present study used rTMS to test whether self-rated mood and emotionally induced facial expressions are hemispherically lateralized depending on their valence, as indicated by previous studies. Healthy volunteers underwent mood self-rating and computerized analysis of emotionally induced facial expressions before and after rTMS of left… CONTINUE READING
