TMS therapy uses powerful magnetic fields that are delivered through a coil positioned over the patient’s scalp. The magnetic pulses are directed toward the left prefrontal cortex where the mood center of the brain is located. As the pulses penetrate the scalp they induce electrical currents that reach about 2 cm into the brain tissue, stimulating the underactive brain cells so common in patients with depression. As the treatment sessions proceed over the ensuing 4-6 weeks, patients begin to notice improvements in sleep quality, concentration, energy level, and overall mood.
