To understand the benefits of the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation we need to understand what this means. A noninvasive method, this causes depolarization or hyperpolarization of the neurons present in the brain. Utilizing the electromagnetic induction, it is used to create weak electric currents by using alternating white magnetic roll
field. This generates activity in those specific areas of the brain, which enables the medical therapist to study the functioning and the inter-connectivity of between the cortex and the muscle. Though it causes minimal discomfort, the method is used to treat various psychiatric and neurological disorders. For example, it is used in migraines, Parkinson's disease, strokes, tinnitus, auditory hallucinations and depression.
Stimulation of the brain by eddy currents was first noted in the twentieth century. Anthony Barker conducted the first successful TMS study in 1985 in England. The first application demonstrated the transmission of the nerve impulses from the motor cortex to the spinal cord. This enthused muscle contractions. Using magnets instead, a direct electrical current also reduced the uneasiness caused during the procedure.
Uses of the TMS
The treatment can be divided into two categories, the diagnostic and the therapeutic.
Reports and studies have shown that TMS is effective in treating certain varieties of major depression. The devices are used to treat the depression disorder in United States, Israel, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the European Union.
The treatment is used to measure the activity and the functionality of certain brain circuits in humans. It is specifically designed to measure the transmission levels between the primary motor cortex to a specific muscle. This would furthermore evaluate the damage done in strokes, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease and spinal cord injuries.
How does TMS function?
The electromagnetic fields generated in the TMS would stimulate the brain and mimic the effects of an anti-depressant
. The fields act like a serotonin reuptake inhibitor and essentially maximize the extracellular serotonin concentrations present in the brain.
The FDA approved machine is placed over the brain and short focused magnetic pulses are transmitted through the skull. An electrical current is induced in the tissues. It is usually done without administering any type of sedative as it effectually targets only a specific area. The medical therapist would determine the threshold level of the patient. The treatment sessions usually last for about forty minutes.
This is an effective therapy for the patients who have severe side effects with anti-depressant medicines. Bearing in mind the other probabilities, the TMS is considered the safest. Research has shown that the patients undergoing TMS has a less probable chance of relapsing into depression.
