What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?

TMS is a form of non-invasive brain stimulation which uses a magnetic pulse to stimulate brain cells. A coil is placed on your head whilst you are seated comfortably in a chair, with the magnetic field increasing activity in the cells underneath the coil.

TMS has been used for over 20 years in the treatment of depression. It has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for that condition. We are now testing its use in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

You will be randomly selected to receive either active or placebo (inactive) TMS. If you were randomised to the placebo group you will be offered active stimulation at the end of the follow-up period.

What is Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS)?

tACS, is a gentle electrical stimulation that can change brain activity. tACS is self-administered in the comfort of your own home, following comprehensive training by a trained researcher. 

You will be randomly selected to receive either active or placebo (inactive) tACS. If you were randomised to the placebo group you will be offered active stimulation at the end of the follow-up period.
