Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
TMS is a non-invasive procedure for treatment-resistant depression that delivers magnetic pulses through an electromagnetic coil to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the specific region of the brain responsible for mood control. It was developed in 1985 as the first non-invasive treatment capable of targeting precise regions of the brain without general anesthesia or pain. Since then, TMS has been approved by the FDA in 2008 and covered by insurance since 2013.
