How it Works

TMS Therapy is a precisely targeted treatment. During TMS Therapy, magnetic field pulses are generated and aimed at the left prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain that has been demonstrated to function abnormally in patients with depression.  This targeted treatment method allows for precise stimulation, minimizing the stimulation of brain tissue not involved in mood.

This magnetic field created in TMS Therapy is the same type and strength as those produced by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. The magnetic fields produced by the TMS Therapy system affect tissue only about 2-3 centimeters into the brain directly beneath the treatment coil. The magnetic field pulses pass unimpeded through the hair, skin, and skull and into the brain.

TMS - How it works

Once inside the brain, the magnetic field pulses induce an electrical current to flow. The amount of electricity created is very small and cannot be felt by the patient, but these small electrical charges cause the neurons to become active and are thought to lead to the release of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine which have a role in the regulation of mood.

Tristate TMS provides TMS therapy at out Brooklyn, NY office.
