In brief: Electromagnetic rx

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (tms) is a noninvasive method to cause depolarization or hyperpolarization in the neurons of the brain.
Tms uses electromagnetic induction to induce weak electric currents using a rapidly changing magnetic field; this can cause activity in specific or general parts of the brain with minimal discomfort, allowing the functioning and interconnections of brain.
