Transcranial magnetic stimulation

Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a noninvasive technique applied in persistent neuropsychiatric diseases such as depression, posttraumatic stress, obsessive-compulsive disorder ( OCD) or other non-psychiatric pathologies. Its use is activating them directly stimulate brain regions, as in the case of the prefrontal cortex and other areas associated with the regulation of mood, using electrical energy that travels through a stimulation coil to create a powerful magnetic field. During a treatment session, the energy of the field is transferred into the brain of a patient through the skin and skull. The advantages of this method is that it is painless and without surgery or sedation.
