Suppression of vision by transcranial magnetic stimulation: a third mechanism.

Abstract:

We recently reported three periods when single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the occipital pole impaired performance on a forced-choice visual letter-identification task. TMS-induced suppression during these periods is best explained by a blink-associated covering of the pupils and by a direct interference with letter-processing neural activity. We now report TMS-induced suppression at times that seem too late for the suppression to be explained by the first mechanism and t...
