Neuromodulation is a growing field where medical devices are used to alter nerve activity by delivery of a stimulus. There are many types of neuromodulation – both invasive and non-invasive. Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS or TMS) is a type of non-invasive neuromodulation where a magnetic field is used to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. For certain conditions, rTMS is FDA-Cleared. Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT) is a type of rTMS that also incorporates the use of an Electroencephalogram. In most cases, MeRT is being used “off-label.”
The studies below are meant to be representative of the developing field of neuromodulation. You will notice that many of the research studies use a variety of scalp locations, intensities, durations, and amplitudes. For this reason, the studies cited below are not necessarily indicative of the scalp location, intensity, durations and/or amplitude that you would receive through treatment at Brainwaves Neuro Restoration Center, Inc.
