OBJECTIVE The objective of this document is to quantify the effect of changing conductivity within the brain in transcranial magnetic stimulation. METHODS Extreme examples of white and grey matter distributions as well as cerebral spinal fluid are analyzed with numerical boundary element methods to show that the induced E fields for these various distributions vary little from the homogeneous case. RESULTS Models representative of the brain that demarcate regions of white matter and grey… CONTINUE READING
