We investigated the effect on the predicted induced field inside the head tissues of the numerical model adopted for simulating the excitation coil during transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). A commercially available eight-shaped coil was modeled in four different ways. The electric field inside a detailed (2 mm resolution) and anatomically realistic numerical phantom of the human head was calculated with the impedance method. The results revealed differences of more than 170% in the… CONTINUE READING
