Is there an eval window/interpreter prompt that works when a program is paused?

I need to change the state of some variables when my program is paused.

The best way to describe this is with a competitor's product.

In Wing IDE, there is a "Stack Probe" window which is a running

Python interpreter prompt- but has scope to the function (or line of code) where the debugger is stopped.

I can use any legal python syntax and have access to all global symbols in the file, as well as

examine/modify all local variables in the current scope.

Does PyCharm have a similar feature? if so, where is this located?
