This line of research investigates the effects of visual illusions on artificial visual experiences induced by TMS of the occipital and parietal cortex.

We induce phosphenes and we manipulate,
in heathy subjects, both the neural site (occipital and parietal cortex) of stimulaiton and the motor outputs (reaction times, pointing, reaching).
