Brain stimulation methods have been used for treatment purposes since quite ancient times. In the 1960s, a research for the effectiveness of low currents on brain began. Having been successfully implemented for the very first time during the 1980s by Anthony Barker et al., TMS is a non-invasive stimulation method being used today for research and treatment purposes. Science is a combination of expertise and engineering.
Deep TMS is a drug-free and non-surgical treatment that does not require anesthetics. The patient is awake and conscious during the implementation. The left prefrontal cortex of the brain is physically stimulated by sending magnetic pulses under the skull through a mechanism placed onto the skull.
