magnetic stimulation

magnetic stimulation

A noninvasive method for stimulating the brain and nerves, using a high-current magnetic pulse passed through a coil of wire.

The pain of electrical stimulation is related to tissue impedance, which is relatively high in skin, bone and subcutaneous tissue; the energy required to stimulate nerves is high enough to activate pain receptors. In contrast to noninvasive electrical stimulation of the nerves, MS is not painful, and may be applicable in injuries with nerve damage.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a versatile method that non-invasively modulates neural processing in the brain by inducing a short capacitor discharge of electric current into a stimulated coil, and subsequently generats a magnetic field, which then induces neural cell membrane potentials depolarizing in cortical tissue under the coil and affect the related nerve loop activity.
