The TMS device contains a magnetic coil that pulsates to stimulate neurons in the region of the brain associated with depression. Because the treatment involves magnets, you cannot wear any metal jewelry, hair clips, etc. Discuss any metal implants in your head with a doctor — they will advise if you are a candidate based on the location of the implant. What to expect? The magnetic pulses are administered on the left side of the head towards the front.

Once the TMS device is positioned, it creates a deep magnetic pulse that targets the left pre-frontal cortex. This pulse comes in rapid succession and is thought to stimulate regions of the brain that are linked to emotion. In depressed patients, these emotion-baring regions are shown to be very non-responsive compared to healthy patients. Over a minute period, pulses from the TMS coil are delivered in second intervals. These pulses feel like tapping on the scalp.
