Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Neuropsychiatry
The author, Mark S. George, MD , 26. Februar 2000 This timely book comprehensively covers this new field For centuries scientists have dreamed of safely stimulating the brain to understand how it works. The new field of TMS is allowing this dream to become reality. This book comprehensively reviews this area, covering its history, physics, safety, and the recent research and clinical work with TMS. The target audience is educated psychologists, neurologists, neuroscientists, and psychiatrists. TMS involves the rapid application of very high magnetic fields, and is likely distinct from the area of work involving constant exposure to low field magnets that is so popular at the moment.
