His extraordinary PhD work, published in 2005 as a paper in Neuron, described the technique of theta burst stimulation (TBS), a rapidly repeated pattern of stimulation which leads to transient changes in brain plasticity. Unlike other forms of plasticity-inducing protocols, TBS is rapid and relatively painless and …
