Abstract

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration for major depressive disorder (MDD). TMS is a neuromodulation technique that works by creating a focal magnetic field that induces a small electric current. Compared with other neuromodulation techniques, TMS is a noninvasive treatment modality that is generally well-tolerated. Because of the success of TMS in treating depression, there has been interest in applications for other neuropsychiatric diseases. The purpose of this article was to review potential uses for TMS for children and adolescents in conditions other than MDD.
