Magnetic stimulation in the treatment of partial seizures.
Three randomly selected patients with partial seizures in whom application of an external artificial magnetic field of low intensity produced a substantial attenuation of seizure frequency during an observation period extending from 10 to 14 months demonstrate that artificial magnetic treatment may be a valuable adjunctive procedure in the management of partial seizures.
Magnetic fields in the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
Application of weak magnetic fields with a frequency of 2 Hz and intensity of 7.5 picotesla for a 6 minute period resulted in a rapid and dramatic attenuation of Parkinsonian disability and an almost complete resolution of the dyskinesias.
Further observations on the unique efficacy of picoTesla range magnetic fields in Parkinson's disease.
Improvement with magnetic therapy was noted not only in the motor sphere, but also in nonmotor aspects of the disease including mood, sleep, pain, anorexia, autonomic, and cognitive functions attesting to the unique efficacy of external picoTesla range MF in the treatment of Parkinsonism.
Magnetic fields normalize visual evoked potentials and brainstem auditory evoked potentials in multiple sclerosis.
This report demonstrates that treatment with picoTesla MF is an effective, nonpharmacological modality in the management of MS and for the first time documents reversal of abnormal evoked potential responses by this treatment.
The effects of external picoTesla range magnetic fields on the EEG in Parkinson's disease.
It is proposed that the clinical effects as well as the EEG changes noted after treatment with picoTesla range magnetic fields were mediated by the pineal gland which previously has been implicated in the pathophysiology of PD.
Magnetic fields mimic the behavioral effects of REM sleep deprivation in humans.
It is proposed that the behavioral and mental effects of treatment with magnetic fields may be mediated via RSD and, by inference, involve activation of limbic dopaminergic reward sites.
Successful treatment of respiratory dyskinesia with picoTesla range magnetic fields.
A schizophrenic patient on long term antipsychotic therapy who presented with respiratory dyskinesia associated with symptoms of TD and tardive Tourette's syndrome which emerged coincident with an abrupt withdrawal of neuroleptic therapy is presented.
