Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
Non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive method to cause depolarization or hyperpolarization in the neurons of the brain. TMS uses electromagnetic induction to induce weak electric currents using a rapidly changing magnetic field; this can cause activity in specific or general parts of the brain with minimal discomfort, allowing for study of the brain's functioning and interconnections. The simultaneous recording of EEG, bipolar as well as peripheral signals opens up new scenarios in the investigation of the mechanisms underlying for example emotional behavior.
