The study involves doing a simple computer-based task whilst receiving short pulses of Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) over parts of the brain to produce a small twitch in the muscles of the hand.
TMS is a painless and non-invasive method of stimulating the brain. The procedure should cause minimal discomfort, and we do not expect any adverse effects from participating in the study.
