Scalp Reduction


Repetitive transcranial repetitive stimulation (rTMS) holds much promise as a therapy to promote recovery following neurotrauma and treat a range of neurological conditions. To deliver rTMS to the brain, a brief, high-current pulse is passed through a wire coil held above the scalp. This electric pulse generates a magnetic field perpendicular to the coil, which readily passes through the scalp, skull and meninges to induce eddy currents in the underlying electrically conductive brain tissue.

Because rTMS was originally developed in human subjects, its effects have primarily been studied in the normal and pathological human brain without passing through a “bench to bedside” development. As a consequence the underlying therapeutic mechanisms and optimal stimulation parameters have not been identified in animal models and very little is known about what aspects of magnetic stimulation are the most important in delivering therapeutic benefits in different pathologies.

A standard EDITORIAL TRACKING SYSTEM is utilized for manuscript submission, review, editorial processing and tracking which can be securely accessed by the authors, reviewers and editors for monitoring and tracking the article processing. Manuscripts can be uploaded online at Editorial Tracking System ( or forwarded to the Editorial Office at
