An approximation model for the computation of the electric fields produced in the brain tissues by magnetic stimulation is presented. Results are given in terms of induced electric field and current density caused by coils of different radii and locations. Nontraditional coil locations and assemblies are also considered (multicoil arrangements). Model simulations show that a good control of the excitation spread can be achieved by proper positioning of the coil. It is also predicted that one of… CONTINUE READING
