Research has shown that TMS can efficiently treat symptoms of depression, anxiety, neurological discomfort, stroke, spinal cord injuries, autism, and more. This process is very simple and noninvasive. During the process, a magnetic field generator or “coil” is placed near the head of the individual getting the treatment. The coil produces small electrical currents in the area of the brain just beneath the coil via electromagnetic induction. This electrical field causes a change in the transmembrane current of the neuron, which results in depolarization or hyperpolarization of the neuron and the firing of an action potential.
