This research study seeks healthy adult participants to explore how transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) affects the brain. TMS is a non-invasive method which uses a magnet placed outside the head to stimulate precise locations inside the brain.

This study is enrolling eligible adults ages 18-65 who are free of serious medical conditions. Participation includes three to four outpatient visits for research evaluations, brain scans, and TMS. All clinical evaluations, research tasks and visits are free of cost. Participants are compensated. The study is conducted at the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland.
