Can magnets be used to treat epilepsy?For over 25 years, magnets have been used to stimulate the brain to investigate how nerve cells are connected in the brain. In many instances people with diseases affecting the brain such as stroke, epilepsy, dystonia and depression have been studied, to work out which pathways are affected. Michelle McDonnell explored how we might treat these conditions using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and if TMS treatments really work.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
