Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a powerful neuroscience technique that provides a mechanism to study causal brain-behavior relationships in both healthy and damaged/diseased brains with a high-degree of both spatial and temporal precision. In this chapter, we take you through the mechanisms of TMS and discuss practical aspects of using TMS for mapping perceptual and cognitive functions in both basic science and clinical contexts.
