The human temporo-parieto-occipital junction is an extrastriate visual area that may mediate motion vision processing. We determined if transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) delivered over this extrastriate area would degrade motion discrimination, similar to the transient decrease in spatial acuity observed when TMS is delivered over striate cortex. TMS was delivered 50-250 msec after the onset of a brief, random dot, motion direction discrimination task or a spatial acuity task. TMS… CONTINUE READING
