Magnetic seizures are a new studied in period of lastdecade physical method, which uses the transcranialmagnetic stimulation (TMS) to intentional andreproductive evoking of the paroxysmal EEG activity.Seizures evoked by magnetic stimulation were observedin monkeys as well as in humans. Investigations showed,that side effects (mainly of cognitive nature) aftermagnetic seizures are lesser than these observed afterelectroconvulsive treatment. However the experimentalinvestigations on antidepressant effectiveness ofmagnetic seizures in animal models of depression areabsent. Limited clinical efficacy was confirmed in notmore than three patients with depression. The resultsof hitherto existing investigations the authors aresubjected by authors to critical analysis.
