Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation In Clinical Psychiatry Edited by Mark S. George and Robert H. Belmaker -American Psychiatric Publishing 2007 (ISBN-13: 978-1585621972)

As understanding evolves about how different brain regions are involved in carrying out everyday tasks—and in causing brain diseases when they go awry—this book describes a new technology that allows physicians to focally stimulate the brain in awake adults through a non-invasive procedure. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Clinical Psychiatry is an accessible and authoritative review of TMS, a procedure that is showing promise as a treatment in several disorders. Its authors explain how the procedure works, then the latest findings in a wide range of situations—notably in depression, but also in other conditions ranging from migraine to stroke recovery.
