      A friend sent this to me after I expressed skepticism about Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation treatment. I was not aware of how we could target specific areas of the brain like this:

      Michael Mosley has areas of his brain turned...

      EDIT
      I initially called it rTMS but then realised that there are different modes of treatment with different abbreviations so I just referred to it by its full name in the description of the video.

      How many sessions are required?

      My brother got it with success in belgium with 30 sessions (40 euros per session 20 min/day) 1200 euros.

      I'm tryng to contact the departments to know if the treatment is still available for tinnitus!

      cheers

      Before rTMS is best to have a qEEG test (Loreta test). That test is showing places on brain where neurons are hiperacitive, and where it should be treated.

      Treating whole head is needlessly.

      @Christian78 knows all details about it, hope he will tell u more about.

      Yes it shows all parts of brain, and one can do in Switzerland only qeeeg, or in Bra2n.

      And in bra2n they first do test and after therapy.
