How TMS Works?

title

TMS therapy uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate the under-active area of the brain thought to be involved with mood regulation. The treatment coil is placed on the left prefrontal cortex and produces a small electrical current that penetrates about 2-3 centimeters into the targeted are of the brain. These electrical currents stimulate the brain cells (neurons) which are thought to release neurotransmitters like serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Since a chemical imbalance in the brain is thought to play a factor in depression, TMS Therapy can help restore the balance and relieve depressive symptoms.
