How Does TMS Work?
TMS devices work by generating highly concentrated electromagnetic pulses which turn on and off very rapidly. These pulses are targeted at areas of the brain involved in mood regulation and shown to be inactive in patients suffering from depression.
As these magnetic fields move into the brain, they produce very small electrical currents. These electrical currents are thought to activate brain cells in these inactive regions and release neurotransmitters like serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine – all of which work to naturally help lesson the symptoms of depression.
