Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a new technology for exploring brain function. With this method, a small electromagnet is placed on the scalp; by activating and deactivating it, nerve cells in the underlying superficial cortex are depolarized. Several studies have found that prefrontal rTMS has potential efficacy in treating depression, and this technology, in addition to being a research tool, may soon play a role in psychiatric practice. Thus, establishing the safety of… CONTINUE READING
