How does TMS work?
TMS is a proven system of targeting particular areas of the brain associated with depression with trans-magnetic impulses. This specific region, located in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, is personally identified for each patient. In addition, a unique threshold of energy is outlined uniquely for each patient. The physician uses a comprehensive mapping paradigm to identify just the right area for each patient.
Once identified, TMS impulses are directed at the area of the brain, therefor enhancing the stimulation required to change the patterned behavior of the brain.
