Transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, is a safe and effective clinical therapy used to treat depression and a number of other neurocognitive disorders.

TMS induces the physiological process of neuromodulation, where a stimulus (from inside or outside the body) directs and regulates a system of neurons, as opposed to affecting one neuron at a time. 

Repetitive application of TMS (rTMS) involves delivering frequent magnetic pulses to the brain at predetermined locations along the scalp, which can change the brain’s inherent electrical activity (pattern of brainwaves) and evoke behavioral changes that can result in improved clinical outcomes.
