dTMS: Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation – New Treatment Options
To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle,
requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.
— Albert Einstein
The brain runs on electrical charges, and targeted magnetism can balance those charges in the living brain.
– Aron Tendler
dTMS provides some surprisingly fresh answers to previously “untreatable” psychiatric problems.This is how our interview with Dr Tendler started: he hit fresh interventions strategies hard – right out of the box – and continued with deep insights throughout our too-brief conversation. Note: He agreed to return now that we’ve had this opportunity for an introduction regarding this exceedingly interesting technology and treatment. dTMS does appear to provide significant answers for refractory responses on many levels – see this list of Indications that are currently under investigation – they’re more than just “interesting.”
Dr Tendler is in active practice, and, in addition, is actively involved in dTMS research. In this interview he spells out the differences between rTMS and dTMS and discusses his clinical work, his successes, and his ongoing inquiries.
His Message In A Sentence:
dTMS Provides an interesting and effective alternative to simply using psychiatric medications alone – TMS strategies work for a variety of conditions from refractory depression to pervasive anxiety. [Listen for my question to Dr. Tendler on Tardive Dyskinesia.]

- Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States
I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!
- Top quality informationFebruary 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland
As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information
- FascinatingFebruary 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.
- My Brain Thanks You!January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States
Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!

- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
