Exploring language with transcranial magnetic stimulation
This workshop adresses methodological aspects of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and its application in language research. Joseph Devlin, our invited speaker, will present on the functioning of TMS and on TMS in neurolinguistic research on Monday, October 8th 2012. He will address the following questions:
1) What is transcranial magnetic stimulation and how does it work?
2) How can TMS be applied to neurolinguistic research and what research on TMS and language already exists?
On Monday afternoon there will be short presentations on experiments and ideas relating to the workshop topic.
On Tuesday, October 9th 2012 Joseph Devlin is available for one-to-one conversations.
Joseph Devlin (http://joedevlin.psychol.ucl.ac.uk/index.php) was trained in neuroimaging and TMS at Oxford and Cambridge. Now he is the principal investigator at the Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences at University College London (UCL). His main interests are language processes and how they relate to other cognitive, motor and sensory systems.
