Magnetic Neural Stimulators — Geometry Assessment
Catalin Curta, Anca-Iulia Nicu, Mihaela Plesa, Radu Ciupa and Septimiu Crisan

This paper presents the results of a geometrical study for a new type of magnetic stimulator for neural tissue. The authors have simulated in 3D electromagnetic software a suite of magnetic stimulators for neural tissue. Graphics have been plotted to overview the field generated by the stimulators and to best choose the geometry that will have the strongest field with the same power consumption.

Keywords: Transcranial magnetic stimulation, coil design, bioelectromagnetism.
