MeRT treatment is a novel and non-invasive medical procedure for treating neuropsychiatric disorders.
Electromagnetic coils are used to strike a magnetic field through the scalp, skull and cranial tissue to induce a weak electrical current in the brain through electromagnetic induction.
This magnetic field is generated many times per second, for several seconds, generating corresponding electric currents. With a safe and gentle intensity, this pulsed magnetic field influences the activation of brain neurons.
Repetitive applications of brain stimulation have been shown to affect the neuronal activity of individuals with autism and other neuropsychiatric disorders.
The BTC Brain Treatment Center applies the MeRT that uses magnetic pulses below the threshold at specific frequencies and locations. Studies of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) with a reduction in magnetic intensity have shown worldwide that the attack rate is significantly low, even in patients with seizure disorders. In fact, it has been shown to have a favorable effect on the reduction of seizures in patients with epilepsy or cortical dysplasia.
An EEG (Electro-Encephalogram) measures electrical activity in the brain. This technology, which has been used for over a century, is currently used to help physicians identify epileptic activity and seizures.
The EEG reflects the metabolic state and activity of the brain, according to different states of consciousness, alertness, and neurological status.
Obtaining an EEG record is painless, noninvasive, and requires relatively little time.
The process of Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MeRT treatment) integrates data taken from EEG in a guiding therapy. As each EEG is unique and tied to the person, this allows a personalized approach to therapy. Since the MeRT treatment uses EEG, biometrics, and the process of brain stimulation, in Brain Treatment Center, we targets individual neuronal deficits not only seen in autism but also in schizophrenia, anxiety and Other neuropsychiatric disorders.
