A transcranial magnetic stimulation induction coil device having a tracking device with a mating portion and at least one set of two or more reflective elements, a casing separate from a tracking device and containing at least one coil winding having a known orientation within the casing, and an attachment portion corresponding to the mating portion for removably attaching the tracking device to the casing such that, when attached, the reflective elements have a known orientation with respect to the known orientation of the coil winding.


A method of and system for monitoring a patients EEG (electroencephalogram) during TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) are disclosed. The system comprises a TMS device to generate, when in an active state, a plurality of magnetic pulses, which can be applied either as a burst, comprising a plurality of pulses grouped together, or as individual pulses, to the patients head, in accordance with a TMS treatment protocol. An EEG system is provided to measure EEG data resulting from the TMS treatment protocol being applied to the patient. The system further comprises control means in communication with the TMD device and the EEG system, the control means being arranged to activate the EEG system during the time periods when the TMS device is not generating pulses, such that the EEG data measurement is continuously applied or interleaved with the magnetic pulses being generated in accordance with the TMS treatment protocol, so as to monitor treatment efficacy and detect potential seizures.


When operating a brain stimulation device, it is critical to understand and control the network effects associated with the area being targeted for stimulation. The combined system and methods provided herein provides the operator with a real-time view of the brain network potentially affected by the stimulation. The system and method are capable of increasing the accuracy of diagnostic information. Additionally, disclosed herein are a system and method for combining navigated brain stimulation data and anatomical data with brain connectivity data for an individual.
