Separation of contamination caused by coil clicks from responses elicited by transcranial magnetic stimulation.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is accompanied with loud clicks that evoke auditory responses in the brain, confounding several types of TMS studies. We investigated the effects of these clicks with high-resolution EEG by applying TMS pulses at 3 magnitudes, with the coil placed either at 10 or 50 mm over the subjects' vertex and recording event… (More)
