Abstract

It is a challenging task to review transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)studies in neuropsychiatric disorder alongside assessments of longstandingclinical applications of ECT as an empirical treatment. The task is challenging,sing because TMS was developed as a probe of neural mechanisms, whereas, in marked contrast, ECT has been a clinical technique om its inception. Since the onset of modern psychopharmacology, the understanding of the potential applications of ECT to neuropsychiatric disorders is generally restricted to case reports of patients with intractable disease that have had atleast a partial response to ECT: Studies of the possible efficacy of TMS in neuropsychiatric conditions have a significant advantage over ECT as the treatments are associated with less morbidity. The only serious Known complication in TMS is a risk of seizures that may increase in patients with neuropsychiatric conditions such as course brain disease. Only cortical structures are themselves accessible to TMS using current technology. Present TMStechniques, however, seem capable of affecting activity in deeper brain structures that are functionally linked to cortical brain regions. TMS permits novel explorations of relationships between regional brain activity and symptoms of a number of neuropsychiatric disorders, as well as in research relating activity in functionally related brain regions to modulation of cognition and affective states in healthy individuals. This is particularly true at present because TMS and powerful neuroimaging and neuropsychological tools are all making rapid advances simultaneously. (C) 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
