Transcranial magnetic stimulation
Transcranial magnetic stimulation involves noninvasive stimulation of the cerebral cortex using externally applied magnetic fields and has been used extensively for the investigation, diagnosis, and management of neurologic disorders. Favorable results have been reported in the treatment of depression, epilepsy, Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke rehabilitation, and chronic pain. Further studies are needed for establishing the efficacy and safety of transcranial magnetic stimulation.
