Abstract

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a technique which uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to focus induced currents in the brain and modulate cortical function. The technique has been used intensely during past ten years as an alternative antidepressive treatment with substantial advantages to the conventional electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) [1]; it is painless and can be given to an awake patient, eliminating the need for anesthesia necessary in ECT. Despite the widespread use of TMS, much is still to be learned about the underlying electromagnetic field distributions. Numerous theoretical models have been developed to provide physicians and scientists with a view of electromagnetic fields interaction and biological tissues during TMS.
