Prenya Rajendran, Atul Jain, Anantha Krishna Chentha, Anushi Bulumulle, Pwint P. Phyu.

Abstract
Transcranial magnetic induction is a promising and powerful tool in the field of neuropsychiatry and has widespread application in basic neurophysiological & neuropsychiatric research, treatment of depression and other psychiatric disorders. Since it is a relatively new technique approved by the FDA, more prospective studies and clinical trials are needed to provide more accurate data and help optimize the treatment.

Key words: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Magnetic Induction, Psychiatry, Depression
