The effect of subthreshold transcranial magnetic stimulation on the excitation of corticospinal volleys with different conduction times
Previous studies in humans interested in inhibitory synaptic activity at the level of the primary motor cortex (M1) have frequently used an electrophysiological technique call short intracortical inhibition (SICI). This technique consists of two subsequent pulses with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)...
How Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation over Early Visual Cortex impacts short-term memory precision and guess rate
Neuroimaging studies have demonstrated that activity patterns in early visual areas predict stimulus properties actively maintained in visual short-term memory. Yet, the mechanisms by which such information is represented remain largely unknown.
Magnets Cured My Depression
TMS — which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2008 and has been gaining popularity since — works by stimulating the part of your brain that controls joy. “When that’s inactive, it causes depression,” Dr. Tarique Perera

A new therapy is changing the way soldiers are treated for depression, PTSD and possibly even suicide. Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia is one of only three places in the Army that does it. It's called TMS, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
Family 411: Unique treatment for when medications for depression don’t work
Depression is more than a rough patch, it's a serious mental health condition. There are signs families should look for and a unique treatment when medications just don't work.
Comparison between neurostimulation techniques rapid transcranial magnetic stimulation vs electroconvulsive therapy for the treatment of resistant depression: patient preference and cost-effectiveness
Aim: The most effective treatment alternatives for TRD are hospitalization, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Here we compared the clinical effectiveness of ECT and TMS, including success rates...
Mental health: Teens test magnetic therapy for treatment-resistant depression
She is one of 11 adolescents who have participated in Monash Health's study of a therapy called repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS). They are still recruiting and aim to reach 40 participants before tallying the results.
Magnetic therapy treatment may significantly improve tinnitus symptoms
Magnetic therapy treatment may significantly improve tinnitus symptoms. Already being used for patients with depression, transcranial magnetic therapy (TMT) may also benefit those with tinnitus.
