Abstract

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is used in several research centres since 1988. Nowadays TMS is in common use in clinical neurophysiology departments in hospitals for measuring conduction speed in motorways. Recently some articles have been published which announce that IMS may have a therapeutic effect on depression. TMS has few side effects but it has caused convulstem in some instances.
