TMS-EEG approach unveils brain mechanisms underlying conscious and unconscious face perception
Perception of external stimuli has been related to recurrent activity in distributed cortical networks, although brain mechanisms for unconscious processing and stimuli access to conscious report need to be clarified. This study aims at investigating modulations in cortical excitability related to unconscious processing and conscious perception of face stimuli. We used TMS-EEG over the right occipital face area (rOFA) to measure cortical excitability during a backward masking paradigm with individually defined stimuli visibility. ... read more
