Abstract

Numerical evaluation of the electromagnetic (EM) quantities induced inside the brain during transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) applications is a fundamental step to obtain the optimization of the treatment in terms of coil position and current intensity. In this sense, the human head model considered and the electromagnetic properties used to characterize the tissues have an influence on the EM solution. Thus, the aim of this study is to evaluate how different skin conductivities and different computational head models, i.e. the ViP Duke and the MIDA, influence the electric field induced inside the brain by a typical TMS coil.
