The ability of a transient magnetic field to induce an electrical current within body tissue permits the researcher and clinician to influence or monitor functions of the neuromuscular system and to affect sensory neurons in the brain. It is able to reach deep neural structures such as the motor cortex and spinal nerve roots, non-invasively and without pain. The effects of magnetic fields have been a source of research and interest, and indeed of fear, since Faraday's experiments showing… CONTINUE READING
