I was searching for a C# counterpart for the Java "synchronized" keyword and I found that there is an Attribute "[MethodImpl(MethodImplOptions.Synchronized)]".
There are quite a lot of synchronization attributes in C# which is rather confusing.

What is the difference between:

public void MyMethod()
{
    lock(this)
    {
        ...
    }
}

and this:

[MethodImpl(MethodImplOptions.Synchronized)]
public void MyMethod()
{
    ...
}
