How TMS work?

TMS work?

During an rTMS session, an electromagnetic coil is placed against your scalp near your forehead. The electromagnet painlessly delivers a magnetic pulse that stimulates nerve cells in the region of your brain involved in mood control and depression.

It’s thought to activate regions of the brain that have decreased activity in depression or other mental health conditions.

The coil is shaped like a figure eight,which narrowly focuses the magnetic field over the stimulation site.The coilis rapidly switched on and off, inducing focused pulses of electrical current in the brain.

The target of treatment for depression is the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex–a highly interconnected region of the frontal lobe which appears to be dysregulated in depression.
