How Does TMS Therapy Work? | Chesapeake VA
The TMS Therapy system produces the same magnetic fields as MRI machines using quick, highly concentrated pulses. The treatment coil is positioned above the left prefrontal cortex, which regulates mood. Because of this, these fields will be focused there.
Magnetic pulses traveling through the brain only reach a small portion directly beneath the treatment coil, affecting mood without causing any adverse side effects.
