History of TMS
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.
