Suppression of Subthalamic Nucleus Activity by Micromagnetic Stimulation

Author(s): Seung Woo Lee, Shelley L. Fried
Suppression of Subthalamic Nucleus Activity by Micromagnetic Stimulation 556 235 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Abstract Magnetic stimulation delivered via 0.5-mm diameter coils was recently shown to activate retinal neurons; the small coil size raises the possibility that micromagnetic stimulation (μMS) could underlie a new…
