Effects of head geometry and coil position on field distribution under transcranial magnetic stimulation

Shahid, Salman and Wen, Peng and Ahfock, Tony and Leis, John (2011) Effects of head geometry and coil position on field distribution under transcranial magnetic stimulation. In: MECBME 2011: Connecting Professionals in Biomedical Sciences and Technology, 21-24 Feb 2011, Sharjah, UAE.


In this study the effects of a realistic head geometry
and coil position on the spatial distribution of induced electric field, under TMS, have been investigated using statistical modalities such as RDM, MAG and CC. It has also been observed that the secondary electric field, caused by the asymmetry of the geometry, leads to a dramatic drop in E-field magnitude, deviation in field focality and accelerates its decay. The results show that the head geometry and coil position play a significant role in shaping the spatial distribution of induced electric field.
