The Oxford Handbook of Transcranial Stimulation

Arch Neurol. 2010;67(6):775-776. doi:10.1001/archneurol.2010.93.
Text Size: A A A
Published online


A PubMed search for “transcranial magnetic stimulation” (TMS) (the main, but not the only, neurostimulation technique discussed in The Oxford Handbook of Transcranial Stimulation) produces more 5700 results, starting from 1987 (more than 1240 in the 2008-present period). This amount of published work indicates the appropriateness of a handbook on this topic. The 5700 result is higher than the more than 3800 articles mentioned in the preface to the handbook and gives a rough idea of the huge current impact of TMS on many aspects of clinical neurology and, more generally, of neuroscience. The index of the handbook explains why. Sections, after a description of the foundations and the basic technical aspects, show that TMS is used by clinical neurologists and neurophysiologists, as well as by cognitive neuroscientists with a psychological background. There are probably no other techniques with such a variety of applications, ranging from the clinic (diagnosis and treatment) to basic research. A single handbook covering all these issues is an ambitious enterprise, but interested clinicians and researchers badly need such a reference book.
