OBJECTIVE To improve the quality of TMS studies by developing a new sham condition. METHODS We describe a novel and easily arranged TMS set-up of two standard TMS coils and a magnetic shield, stacked like a sandwich. In a first step we compare the magnetic field in the sham and verum conditions. In a second step we ask six subjects to rate the stimulation intensity. RESULTS The magnetic field in the sham mode is reduced to about one eighth of that during verum stimulation. The attenuation… CONTINUE READING
