Neurostimulation (Cambridge research systems)

TMS Neuronavigator TMS Neuronavigator is a hardware and software system which enables the precise and individual navigation of a TMS coil above a specific anatomical area of the brain, as well as an imaging-guided navigation of the TMS coil to functionally defined brain Regions-of- Interest. The system contains the BrainVoyager QX software package, a special neuronavigation software module and the digitizer hardware. The TMS Neuronavigator system can be used with any TMS coil. The Magstim figure of eight coil and the Medtronic MC-B70 coil are directly supported. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a well-established tool for inducing transient changes in brain activity non-invasively in conscious human volunteers. An increasing number of studies have used the behavior-modulating capacity of TMS to reveal causal brain-behavior relationships, investigating an ever increasing range of different behavioral, cognitive, and affective functions. Recently, TMS has also been applied as a therapeutic tool for treating a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders including, for example, depression, neglect, stroke, or schizophrenia. All these studies clearly demonstrate the potential of TMS to serve as a unique research tool for the investigation of a broad variety of issues in cognitive neuroscience. Different experimental TMS protocols can be designed to address questions concerning the location, timing, lateralization, functional relevance or plasticity of the neuronal correlates of information processing. The hypotheses underlying these different experimental
