Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven't been effective
NeuroStar TMS Therapy Depression works through transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), in which highly targeted magnetic pulses stimulate the areas of the brain that are underactive in patients with severe depression.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive method to cause depolarization or hyperpolarization in the neurons of the brain. TMS uses electromagnetic induction to induce weak electric currents using a rapidly changing magnetic field. The electromagnet used in TMS creates electric currents that stimulate nerve cells in the region of your brain involved in mood control and depression. TMS may be tried when other depression treatments haven't worked.
