During treatment, magnetic pulses are delivered through a magnetic coil to stimulate nerve cells in the part of the brain controlling the mood. Repeated stimulation of this area of the brain can have an antidepressant effect on people suffering from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) therapy has been recommended by the American Psychiatric Association since 2010 for treatment of major depressive disorder.

It may furthermore be used as an adjunct treatment of adult patients suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
