Transcranial magnetic stimulation in the study of language and communication

Carlo Miniussi, Maria Cotelli, Rosa Manenti

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The results of many neuroimaging and high-resolution Electroencephalography (EEG) experiments, described in other chapters of this book, have revealed important correlative evidence for the involvement of several brain regions in linguistic communication. Neuroimaging and EEG techniques based on in vivo measurements of local changes in activity provide the best spatial and temporal resolution available. However, none of these techniques can unequivocally determine whether an active area is essential for a particular function or behavior [1].
