Electromagnetism, Emotion Regulation and Aspergers - Thursday 12th October 2017

Electromagnetism and Aspergers: What is TMS and what does it do?

A/Prof. Peter Enticott is a psychologist and neuroscientist in the School of Psychology, Deakin University. He is a member of the Deakin Child Study Centre (DCSC), where he leads the “Child Neuroscience and Assessment” research area.
