Functional Roles of Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex

Study Description

Functional Roles of Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex

Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) has been found to be involved in cognitive functions such as executive function, response selection, and working memory. By applying transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) or transcranial focused ultrasound (FUS), which is a technology to temporally alter brain state in the stimulation site, the investigators aim to find supporting evidence for the causal relationship between the targeted stimulation site and motor learning improvement or response selection.

Theta Burst Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Theta Bursts are short bursts of stimulation at high frequencies, which are applied 5 times per second

Focused Ultrasound

Low intensity focused ultrasound is sound energy stimulation at a low intensity of 1-30 W/cm2

Sham

The investigators will simulate theta bursts pulses similar to the Theta Burst Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation groups but without stimulation.
