Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Treatment Resistant Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Disorder
TMS - Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive method to cause depolarization or hyperpolarization in the neurons of the brain. TMS uses electromagnetic induction to induce weak electric currents using a rapidly changing magnetic field; this can cause activity in specific or general parts of the brain with minimal discomfort, allowing the functioning and interconnections of the brain to be studied.
New research suggests rTMS brain stimulation could become a viable treatment option for anorexia nervosa.
