Noninvasive Brain Stimulation Helps Treat Cocaine Addiction
Early results suggest that repetitive transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS) reduces both substance use and cravings in cocaine addicts, offering hope of a novel medical treatment for patients with this addiction.
People Fighting Depression Discover Little-Known Treatment
The treatment, repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), could help many of the patients who remain trapped by major depression even after trying a whole menu of antidepress
TMS offers hope for depression sufferers
Transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, is a relatively new treatment for depression. It produces magnetic pulses similar to those found in MRI machines, but precisely targeted to certain areas of the brain to produce a therapeutic response.
Brain Stimulation May Be Key to Full Recovery After Stroke
Most stroke patients stop improving after three months. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be a way to extend that deadline.
TMS Health Education Announces The Advanced Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Symposium
SACRAMENTO, CA, December 23, 2015 /satPRnews.com/ — TMS Health Education, which offers accredited courses from the world’s leaders in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) announced that it will be hosting the first-ever Advanced TMS Symposium.
Your Brain Recovers Memories Faster Than the Blink of an Eye
Using a brain scanner, scientists have discovered that memories can be recovered in just a tenth of a second - around a third of the time needed to blink. Previous research had estimated this at around five tenths of a second. The researchers also found retrieval can be obstructed if the person is subjected to repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), in which a magnetic coil is placed on their head.
Is TMS Cost-Effective?
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is known to be a safe, noninvasive, treatment for major depressive disorder (MDD), but how does cost compare with that of pharmacotherapy?
