Brain Stimulation Equipment up and running

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a safe and non-invasive tool to measure brain activity. We will use TMS to study how pathways in the brain are preserved or affected in children who experience brain injury. Click here to see a video with children describing what it is like to be part of a TMS study. The video was produced by one our collaborators, Dr. Kathleen Friel.
