Using Transcranial Magnetic Brain Stimulation (TMS) to study motor skill learning

Toronto Western Hospital - University Health Network, Toronto Western Research Institute

Magnetic Brain Stimulation (TMS) is a safe and non-invasive technique to activate nerve pathways in the brain. This study will use TMS to study motor skill learning.
