Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, affecting millions of mostly elderly people around the world. In these people, the connections between nerve cells collapse and brain networks gradually falter, resulting in a decline in memory and the ability to think and learn.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a procedure that stimulates and modulates the nervous system. Electromagnetic impulses are applied to a specific area of the brain and researchers think the magnetic fields produce electric currents within the brain that influence the activity of nerve cells which helps improve the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
This study shows promise that TMS helps improve symptoms of early Alzheimer’s dementia. Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) – Alzheimer’s News Today (alzheimersnewstoday.com)
