Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Two improved versions of a TMS coil designed for stimulation of deep neuronal structures, the new H1 and H2 coils, were built and tested for safety on 31 normal volunteers. Treatments were conducted with H1-coil, H2-coil, Standard (superficial) figure-8 coil and Sham coil at 1, 10 and 20 Hz. Analysis of short clinical assessments protocols and additional safety measurements revealed that TMS stimulation was well tolerated with no major side effects. Overall, the changes were not differential for the four treatment groups and no evidence was found for a possible deterioration in cognitive performance due to the TMS treatments. In some tests transient cognitive improvement were observed, but only with deep TMS.
The H-coils were then used in a clinical study to test for effectiveness and safety on 50 depressed patients, who received daily TMS treatment 5 days per week for 4 consecutive weeks. Stimulation with these coils was well tolerated, with no major side effects or adverse physical outcomes. Compared with the value prior to the start of TMS therapy, 31.3 ± 5.0, the average HAM-D scale dropped significantly to 16.2 ± 9.9 on the day after completion of the therapy. There was no significant difference between the coils, but the H1 coil tended to induce greater antidepressant effects. The CANTAB performed before, during and after the study indicated selective improvement in cognitive functions, especially spatial memory and executive function.
We also showed, using computer models, that an effective way to improve the performance of the H-coils is to combine them with iron cores. Their presence contributes to an overall increase in stimulus intensity in the vicinity of the core, which is more pronounced in deep regions.

Three-dimensional distribution of the electric field induced in the brain by transcranial magnetic stimulation using figure-8 and deep H-coils
Publication year: 2007

http://www.brainsway.com/Brainsway/SendFile.asp?DBID=1&LNGID=1&GID=467
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The H-coils are a novel development in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), designed to achieve effective stimulation of deep neuronal regions without inducing unbearable fields cortically, thus broadly expanding the potential feasibility of TMS for research and for treating various neurologic disorders. This study compared the field distribution of two H-coil versions, termed H1 and H2, and of a standard figure-of-eight coil. Three-dimensional electrical field distributions of the H1 and H2-coils, designed for effective stimulation of prefrontal regions, and of a standard figure-8 coil, were measured in a head model filled with physiologic saline solution. With stimulator output at 120% of the hand motor threshold, suprathreshold field is induced by the H1-coil at lateral and medial frontal regions at depths of up to 4 to 5 cm, and by the H2-coil at medial prefrontal regions up to 2 to 3 cm, and at lateral frontal regions up to 5 to 6 cm. The figure-8 coil induced suprathreshold field focally under the coil's central segment, at depths of up to 1.5 cm. The ability of the H-coils to stimulate effectively deeper neuronal structures is obtained at the cost of a wider electrical field distribution in the brain. However, the H-coils enable simultaneous stimulation of several brain regions, whereas the depth penetration in each region can be controlled either by adjusting the stimulator output, and/or by varying the distance between various coil elements and the skull.

High permeability cores to optimize the stimulation of deeply located brain regions using transcranial magnetic stimulation
Publication year: 2009
URL:
http://iopscience.iop.org/0031-9155/54/10/010
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Efficient stimulation of deeply located brain regions with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) poses many challenges, arising from the fact that the induced field decays rapidly and becomes less focal with depth. We propose a new method to improve the efficiency of TMS of deep brain regions that combines high permeability cores, to increase focality and field intensity, with a coil specifically designed to induce a field that decays slowly with increasing depth. The performance of the proposed design was investigated using the finite element method to determine the total electric field induced by this coil/core arrangement on a realistically shaped homogeneous head model. The calculations show that the inclusion of the cores increases the field's magnitude by as much as 25% while also decreasing the field's decay with depth along specific directions. The focality, as measured by the area where the field's norm is greater than 1/sq.rt.2 of its maximum value, is also improved by as much as 15% with some core arrangements. The coil's inductance is not significantly increased by the cores. These results show that the presence of the cores might make this specially designed coil even more suited for the effective stimulation of deep brain regions.

High-permeability core coils for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation of deep brain regions
Publication year: 2007

http://europepmc.org/abstract/MED/18003551
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Stimulation of deep brain regions with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) may have an important role as a therapy to treat chemical dependency and depression. The coils traditionally used in TMS, however, have a poor performance in stimulating deep neurons. In this work we study the usage of high permeability cores combined with coils specifically designed to induce fields that decay slowly with depth. By using the finite elements method we show that the use of such cores increases the field's magnitude, decreases its decay rate and improves its focality. Such improvements make these high permeability core coils more suited to stimulate deep brain regions.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
To design and test new coils for transcranial magnetic stimulation of deep brain structures. Efficient stimulation of structures such as the nucleus accumbens and other limbic regions is necessary for the successful application of TMS in psychiatry.
METHODS:
TMS coils specially designed for deep stimulation (H1 and H2 coils) were tested on 31 normal subjects and on 50 drug resistant patients suffering from major depression. Numerical methods were used to predict the electric field induced by these coils and to investigate ways to improve their performance.
RESULTS:
In normal subjects rTMS stimulation at 1, 10 or 20 Hz was well tolerated with no major side effects. Auditory thresholds measured by audiograms indicated no hearing loss of any of the subjects. No evidence was found for a possible deterioration in cognitive performance due to rTMS. No epileptic convulsions were experienced.
TMS treatment 5 days per week for 4 consecutive weeks was well tolerated by the depressed subjects, with no major side effects or adverse physical outcomes. The average HAM-D scale dropped significantly from 31.3 ± 5.0 prior to TMS to 16.2 ± 9.9 on the day after completion of therapy. There was no significant difference between the coils, however the H1 coil tended to induce greater antidepressant effects. The CANTAB performed before, during and after the study indicated selective improvement in cognitive functions, especially spatial memory and executive function.
Numerical calculations based on 3D models of the H1 and H2 coils placed over the head phantom produced results in good agreement with measured values. Clear improvements in coil performance (stimulus intensity, depth and focality) were predicted only when iron cores were added to the coils.
CONCLUSIONS:
The safety and effectiveness of the novel H1 and H2 coils were demonstrated. The use of high permeability cores is the best way to improve the performance of these coils.

The role of the right temporo-parietal junction in maintaining a coherent sense of one’s body

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We constantly feel, see and move our body, and have no doubt that it is our own. The brain possesses a distinction between the body and the objects in the outside world. This distinction may be based on a process that monitors whether sensations, events and objects should be attributed to one's body or not. We controlled whether an external object was represented as part of the body or not, by experimentally inducing a bodily illusion using correlated visual and tactile stimulation. We then studied the role of right temporo-parietal junction (rTPJ) in the processing of multisensory events that may or may not be attributed to one's body. Disruption of rTPJ using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) made the distinction between what may or may not be part of one's body on the basis of multisensory evidence more ambiguous, suggesting that the rTPJ is actively involved in maintaining a coherent sense of one's body, distinct from external, non-corporeal, objects.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The project aimed at characterizing the neurocognitive basis of religiousness/spirituality (RS) and its links with the bodily self. First, by using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), we down-regulated neural activity of the inferior parietal (IPL) and prefrontal areas to test possible modifications of implicit RS in healthy subjects. We found that TMS of the IPL increased participants’ implicit RS. Given the role of the parietal cortex in self-awareness and body schema representation, the results suggest that altered parietal activity is a neurophysiological substrate of self-transcendence. Preliminary results on 12 patients with lesion to either parietal or frontal brain regions confirmed the role of the parietal cortex in RS. The links between self-transcendence and bodily self were also investigated in 96 children. We explored how personality traits influence the development of the abilities to mentally rotate bodies and external objects. We found that mental body rotation is acquired later than mental object rotation (from 8-9 vs. 7 years of age) and that personality traits such as cooperativeness and self-transcendence importantly influence the development of these abilities. Finally, we assessed whether training in mindfulness meditation (MM) promotes congruency between implicit and explicit RS and their general increase in healthy subjects. Of note, for MM participants (vs. no MM controls), we found increased implicit RS after MM. Moreover, explicit and implicit RS were correlated, especially after MM. By using different approaches, the present project fostered our knowledge of the neurocognitive processes that allow humans to transcend the spatiotemporal constraints of the physical body increasing their RS.

Virtual lesions of the inferior parietal cortex induce fast changes of implicit religiousness/spirituality
Publication year: 2014

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Religiousness and spirituality (RS) are two ubiquitous aspects of human experience typically considered impervious to scientific investigation. Nevertheless, associations between RS and frontoparietal neural activity have been recently reported. However, much less is known about whether such activity is causally involved in modulating RS or just epiphenomenal to them. Here we combined two-pulse (10 Hz) Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) with a novel, ad-hoc developed RS-related, Implicit Association Test (IAT) to investigate whether implicit RS representations, although supposedly rather stable, can be rapidly modified by a virtual lesion of inferior parietal lobe (IPL) and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). A self-esteem (SE) IAT, focused on self-concepts nonrelated to RS representations, was developed as control. A specific increase of RS followed inhibition of IPL demonstrating its causative role in inducing fast plastic changes of religiousness/spirituality. In contrast, DLPFC inhibition had more widespread effects probably reflecting a general role in the acquisition or maintenance of task-rules or in controlling the expression of self-related representations not specific to RS.

Magnetic stimulation of fronto-parietal areas alters religious-spiritual self-representations in healthy individuals
Publication year: 2012

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Religiousness and spirituality (RS) are ubiquitous in people's lives, but only recently have been considered
susceptible to scientific investigation. While recent studies have shown that a large set of brain areas is
activated during RS experiences, their specific causative role in underpinning stable RS remains to be
determined. In this study, we combined two-pulse (10 Hz) transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) with an
Implicit Association Test (IAT) for RS to investigate the role of dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and
inferior parietal lobe (IPL) in implicit RS representations. A self-esteem IAT which still focused on selfconcepts
but not on RS-related representations was used as control. The results showed that delivering TMS over the IPL specifically heightened participants' RS, as they found more difficult to associate the self with not-RS dimensions relative to RS dimensions. Moreover, TMS over the left DLPFC marginally increased response times in the incongruent trials of both IATs. Thus, altered neural activity in parietal regions determines fast, reversible changes of self-referential RS representations in healthy individuals, showing the causal role of these brain systems in RS. Conversely, the DLPFC appears to more generally contribute to RS in terms of attentional processes or activation of self-related concepts.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives: Illusory own-body perception (IOBPs) such as out of body experiences (OBEs) and
distortion of body parts have attracted most interest when reported by patients suffering cardiac
arrest and near death experiences, but they have also been reported to occur spontaneously in
patients with epilepsy or migraine, during dreams and have been induced by electrical stimulation
of the right temporoparietal junction (TPJ). However, the neurophysiological mechanisms involved
in such illusory body perceptions remain elusive. Until now there have been worldwide only three
patients, in which direct electrical stimulation of the cortex induced OBEs (for a review s. Ridder et
al. 2007, N Engl J Med). The aim of this study was therefore to investigate in a larger sample under
which conditions transcranial cortex stimulation can induce IOBPs.
Methods: In several experiments MRI-neuronavigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and
transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) were applied over specific brain regions in awake and
in sleeping subjects. Continuous EEG recording was used to verify different sleep stages and to
investigate neural correlates of IOBPs.
Results: Most remarkably, we found that only inhibition of the TPJ induced IOBPs in awake
subjects. Neither high-frequency TMS of the TPJ nor low-frequency TMS of a control site induced
such effects. Thus, our effects were area and frequency specific. Although none of our subjects
reported OBEs, low-frequency TMS of the TPJ could induce illusory own body perceptions such as
twitching sensations and illusory movements of body parts. Spectral EEG analyses revealed that
IOBPs could only be induced, if the deactivation of the TPJ was associated with the deactivation of
the frontopolar cortex.
Conclusions: Our data imply that the impairment of a temporoparietal and a frontal network is
necessary for IOBPs. In a further study we investigated the effects of tDCS during sleep on ownbody
perception in dream reports. Compared with sham stimulation, a significant decrease in the
subjective estimate of the amount of movements in the dream before awakening from REM sleep
was found only after inhibitory tDCS.
Discussion: These studies reveal novel approaches for probing the neurobiology of IOBPs in the
awake and the sleeping mind and might provide new insights in understanding the
pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric disorders associated with abnormal own-body perceptions.

Neuromodulation as a cognitive enhancement strategy in healthy older adults: promises and pitfalls

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Increases in life expectancy have been followed by an upsurge of age-associated cognitive decline. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) have risen as promising approaches to prevent or delay such cognitive decline. However, consensus has not yet been reached about their efficacy in improving cognitive functioning in healthy older adults. Here we review the effects of TMS and tDCS on cognitive abilities in healthy older adults. Despite considerable variability in the targeted cognitive domains, design features and outcomes, the results generally show an enhancement or uniform benefit across studies. Most studies employed tDCS, suggesting that this technique is particularly well-suited for cognitive enhancement. Further work is required to determine the viability of these techniques as tools for long-term cognitive improvement. Importantly, the combination of TMS/tDCS with other cognitive enhancement strategies may be a promising strategy to alleviate the cognitive decline associated with the healthy aging process.

Magnetic stimulation of visual cortex impairs perceptual learning
Publication year: 2016
URL:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053811916304566
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The ability to learn and process visual stimuli more efficiently is important for survival. Previous neuroimaging studies have shown that perceptual learning on a shape identification task differently modulates activity in both frontal-parietal cortical regions and visual cortex (Sigman et al., 2005;Lewis et al., 2009). Specifically, fronto-parietal regions (i.e. intra parietal sulcus, pIPS) became less activated for trained as compared to untrained stimuli, while visual regions (i.e. V2d/V3 and LO) exhibited higher activation for familiar shape. Here, after the intensive training, we employed transcranial magnetic stimulation over both visual occipital and parietal regions, previously shown to be modulated, to investigate their causal role in learning the shape identification task. We report that interference with V2d/V3 and LO increased reaction times to learned stimuli as compared to pIPS and Sham control condition. Moreover, the impairment observed after stimulation over the two visual regions was positive correlated. These results strongly support the causal role of the visual network in the control of the perceptual learning.
