Abstract
Abstract Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive neurophysiologic technique that can stimulate the human brain. Positioning of the coil was often performed based merely on external landmarks on the head, meaning that the anatomical target in the cortex remains inaccurate. Navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) combines a frameless stereotactic navigational system and TMS coil and can provide a highly accurate delivery of TMS pulses with the guidance of imaging. Therefore, many novel utilities for TMS could be explored due to the ability of precise localization. Many studies have been published, which indicate nTMS enables presurgical...
