The effect of inaccurate targeting of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex on TMS response
TLDR
An accurate patient-specific determination of the stimulation target in combination with a neuronavigation system is mandatory to perform reliable TMS studies, and the number of spikes initiated and propagating towards deeper limbic regions is highly variable.
Reliability of targeting methods in TMS for depression: Beam F3 vs. 5.5 cm
Effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on mood in healthy subjects
TLDR
This study did not show any deleterious effect on mood and emotion recognition of 10 sessions of rTMS applied on the DLPFC in healthy subjects, and suggested a positive effect of r TMS on quality of life.
[Transcranial magnetic stimulation in psychiatric therapy].
TLDR
A group of European experts presented the study, in which they regarded TMS as the effective method in therapy of depression and schizophrenia--presenting conditions to the optimal stimulation.
A generalized workflow for conducting electric field–optimized, fMRI-guided, transcranial magnetic stimulation
TLDR
An approach for optimizing transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) targeting by combining functional magnetic resonance imaging and iterative electric-field stimulation is described, demonstrating how constrained fMRI targeting combined with iterative E-field modeling can be used as a general method to optimize both the TMS coil site and its orientation.
MRI-free neuronavigation for transcranial magnetic stimulation in severe depression
TLDR
This paper presents a MRI-free neuronavigation technique for repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) that is reproducible and acceptable for routine application of rTMS in severe depression.
A Triangulation-Based MRI-Guided Method for TMS Coil Positioning
TLDR
Brain imaging studies showed that language processing is not restricted to Broca’'s and Wernicke’s areas as shown by lesion studies, but requires a network of different brain areas which may be interconnected.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation and the challenge of coil placement: A comparison of conventional and stereotaxic neuronavigational strategies
TLDR
It is suggested that highest precision can be achieved with fMRI‐guided stimulation, which was accurate within the range of millimeters and very consistent results were also obtained with the “probabilistic” approach.
Using the International 10-20 EEG System for Positioning of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
TLDR
Using the 10-20 system for TMS positioning is applicable at low cost and may reach desired cortex regions reliably on a larger scale level and for finer grained positioning, possible interindividual differences, and therefore the application of neuroimaging based methods are to be considered.

A Randomized Trial of rTMS Targeted with MRI Based Neuro-Navigation in Treatment-Resistant Depression
TLDR
The use of neuro-navigational methods to target a specific DLPFC site appears to enhance response to rTMS treatment in depression, and an overall significant reduction in the Montgomery–Asberg Depression Rating Scale scores is found.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of depression.
TLDR
Most data support an antidepressant effect of high-frequency repetitive TMS administered to the left prefrontal cortex, and TMS promises to provide insights into the pathophysiology of depression through research designs in which the ability of TMS to alter brain activity is coupled with functional neuroimaging.
