Abstract: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technic wich allows Neuroscience researchers to disrupt or improve the normal brain activity in a strategic and focalized cortical areas. Our present work using TMS is focused on research the role of Anterior Cingolate Cortex (ACC) to discover its causal implications over autoreferencial judgments of own behaviour using healthy controls. If our hypothesis is confirmed and ACC has a keyrole in those autoreferential judgements; new research lines and stimulation techniques could strenghten to improve quality of life and feelings of overcoming to thousands of mental health patients and neurodegenerative.
