Main Areas of Interest:
The use of transcranial magnetic stimulation to study the neural network (intracortical inhibitory and intracortical facilitatory circuit). It is a non invasive technique used as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. Through this magnetic stimulation I have more than 30 international publications in this topic.
