repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive and painless method for the influence of brain function.

Neuronal activity is stimulated in target brain area, by changes in the dynamic of its neural excitability.

The magnetic inductor produce focal magnetic field penetrating deeply in the brain tissue depending from the form of magnetic inductor.

The focal magnetic field stimulates neural activity in the targeted brain area by changes in the dynamic of its neural excitability. It is possible to bring along increasing or decreasing of the power in the synaptic connections, activated from the different forms of rTMS.

rTMS modulate the power of the synaptic plasticity which could continue weeks and months, showing the long-lasting efficacy of the therapy.

A lot of investigations demonstrate that the rTMS by patients with cerebral palsy have to activates motor and speak functions after stimulating the certain brain cortex.
