Abstract: We investigated the necessary role of the right parietal lobe in visual word recognition using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS was applied to the right posterior parietal lobe and to a control area as participants read aloud words presented either in lower case or in mIxEd-cAsE. The words were presented either with unlimited duration and high contrast (Experiment 1), or with brief presentation and low-contrast (Experiments 2 and 3). In all three experiments, TMS over the parietal area disrupted reading, and in Experiments 2 and 3 this effect was most pronounced for mIxEd-cAsE words. This suggests that the right parietal lobe mediates the recognition of words in unfamiliar formats.
