about

Written by experts in the field, this book is an essential compendium on plasticity of the human brain in health and disease. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive and painless technique that has opened up completely new avenues to study neural plasticity. Current knowledge of all these possibilities is brought together in this book, which is intended for clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists and neuroscientists.
