Other Areas of Application

TMS has been a large part of cognitive neuroscience, aiding investigative learning, memory, creativity, speech, hearing, visual perception, functional connection, and cognitive enhancement. It is also utilized in neuropsychology to stimulate central and peripheral nerve pathways. This elicits motor-provoked potentials to enhance brain mapping.

In psychiatry, TMS has been known to influence specific brain functions within the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, relieving anxiety, depression, bulimia, schizophrenia, and depersonalization. Likewise, TMS can aid in physical muscle recovery, making it an excellent tool in the field of rehabilitation as well.
