Robotic positioning systems for transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) promise improved accuracy and stability of coil placement, but there is limited data on their performance. Investigate the usability, accuracy, and limitations of robotic coil placement with a commercial system, ANT Neuro, in a TMS study. Approach: 21 subjects underwent a total of 79 TMS sessions corresponding to 160 hours under robotic coil control. Coil position and orientation were monitored concurrently through an additional neuronavigation system. Main Results: Robot setup took on average 14.5 min. The robot achieved low position and orientation error with median 1.34 mm and 3.48°. The error increased over time at a rate of 0.4%/minute for both position and orientation. Significance: Robotic TMS systems can provide accurate and stable coil position and orientation in long TMS sessions. Lack of pressure feedback and of manual adjustment of all coil degrees of freedom were limitations of this robotic system.

The treatment we are studying is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). In TMS, an electromagnetic pulse is passed into the brain through a coil placed on the head. Previous studies ha...
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.
A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.
A technique that involves the use of electrical coils on the head to generate a brief magnetic field which reaches the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is coupled with ELECTROMYOGRAPHY response detection to assess cortical excitability by the threshold required to induce MOTOR EVOKED POTENTIALS. This method is also used for BRAIN MAPPING, to study NEUROPHYSIOLOGY, and as a substitute for ELECTROCONVULSIVE THERAPY for treating DEPRESSION. Induction of SEIZURES limits its clinical usage.
Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.
