MAGIC: An open-source MATLAB toolbox for external control of transcranial magnetic stimulation devices
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is widely used in basic and clinical research. As long as standard protocols with fixed-stimulation parameters are used, it is sufficient to pre-define those parameters manually via the control interface of the TMS device. However, there are two scenarios for which stimulation parameters need to be changed automatically from trial-to-trial: a priori randomization (e.g., intermingling single- and paired-pulse conditions to prevent order effects) and ad hoc adjustment (e.g., iteratively adjusting stimulation parameters based on past events or current brain state). ... read more
