Repetitive trans cranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a noninvasive form of brain stimulation in which a magnetic field is used to stimulate a specific area of the brain through electromagnetic induction.
rTMS has shown diagnostic and therapeutic potential in the central nervous system with regard to a wide variety of neurological disease states and mental health applications.
rTMS treatments are now approved by the FDA in the USA for the treatment of depression.
Other uses for rTMS may include:
- Memory enhancement
- Focus and concentration
- Enhanced leaning ability
