The development of the use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in the study of psychological functions has entered a new phase of sophistication. This is largely due to an increasing physiological knowledge of its effects, and using it in combination with other experimental techniques. This article presents the current state of our understanding of the mechanisms of TMS in the context of designing and interpreting psychological experiments. We discuss the major conceptual advances in behavioral studies using TMS. These are almost entirely a consequence of the physiological and technical achievements, and the contributions they have made to the understanding of perceptual and cognitive processes. In doing so we summarize the different uses and challenges of TMS in mental chronometry, perception, awareness, learning and memory
