BACKGROUND In transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) a strong, brief current pulse driven through a coil is used for non-invasively stimulating the cortex. Properties of the electric field (E-field) induced by the pulse together with physiological parameters determine the outcome of the stimulation. In research and clinical use, TMS is delivered using a wide range of different coils and stimulator units, all having their own characteristics; however, the parameters of the induced E-field are… CONTINUE READING
