“We see psychiatry as a work in progress,” Halper said. “It’s a very exciting field. It’s always evolving. I’m hoping to combine TMS with more neuroimaging to target it more, and see if we can predict patient response with neuroimaging.”

Dr. Alan Manevitz, a clinical psychiatrist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, said, "It's a very effective treatment for depression and anxiety."
Manevitz thinks using it to help people stop smoking makes sense. Other studies, he noted, have found that stimulating an area of the brain called the insula can reduce the desire to smoke.
"Adding brain stimulation to other smoking cessation methods like nicotine substitution might make it even more effective," he said.
When used for depression, magnetic brain stimulation costs from $300 to $350 a session, and the treatment may not be covered by insurance, Manevitz said.
