Magnetic Stimulation of Neural Tissue

Magnetic Stimulation of Neural Tissue

(p.375) Chapter 22 Magnetic Stimulation of Neural Tissue

Jaakko Malmivuo

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the principle of magnetic stimulation and its neurological applications. At present the widest application of magnetic stimulation is the stimulation of the central nervous system. This bioelectric activity produces an electric current in the volume conductor which induces the biomagnetic field. This correlation between the bioelectric and biomagnetic phenomena is, of course, not limited to the generation of the bioelectric and biomagnetic fields by the same bioelectric sources. This correlation also arises in the stimulation of biological tissue.

Keywords:   magnetic stimulation, neural tissues, central nervous system, bioelectric activity, volume conductor, biomagnetic fields
