The study involves playing a few computerized tasks while your lie in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, a safe method for recording brain structure and activity, which require you to lie inside a narrow tube and hold still for up to about 60 minutes. You will also be asked to play computerized games following the application of transcranial magnetic stimulation and we will record your brainwaves (EEG) during these games. Participants will also be asked to complete questionnaires about  themselves, and their drug use history.
