TMS - Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive technology. With the TMS, the brain areas are both stimulated and inhibited by strong magnetic fields. Furthermore, the transcranial magnetic stimulation is used on horses, on a limited scale, for neurological diagnosis or for the treatment of neurological diseases such as Ataxia.

 

Action and examination technique

  • At the inductor, a magnetic field is generated by means of electrical charge
  • Stimulation of the motor cortex (a brain area) with the inductor: The stimulus is sent through the spinal cord, peripheral nerves and to the extremities
