Welcome to the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation lab at CU Anschutz Medical Campus!

Our technician, Lucas, demonstrating the process of finding the resting motor threshold, the basic unit of dosing in TMS.

Here at the CU Anschutz campus, our TMS laboratory is used for clinical and research applications. Our team has nearly a decade of experience in administering TMS across a multitude of settings.

Our TMS Resources

Our lab is equipped with a Magstim® BiStim² and a Magstim Rapid² stimulator, a CED Micro1401-3 interface, and a BIOPAC MP150. To aid with this equipment, we utilize BrainsightTM Neuronavigation software, which integrates MRI and fMRI data to help with data acquisition validity.

We have a variety of Magstim® TMS coils available:
– D70 Coil
– 90mm Coil
– Air Cooled Coil
– AirFilm Coil – Rapid Version
– Sham AirFilm Coil
– Custom Angled AirFilm Coil
– Double Cone Coil

The TMS Laboratory within the CU Neuromag group requires that all TMS technicians and study personnel using TMS equipment pass a seizure safety training course as well as BCLS or ACLS. There is a seizure safety protocol in place including notification of an on-call neurologist and poster with other safety information and emergency numbers. All seizures will be reported to the local IRB. For headaches, there are analgesics (acetaminophen and ibuprofen) available in the laboratory. For other medical emergencies, study personnel are instructed to call 911. While Fitzsimmons Building does not house emergency medical services, it is on the Anschutz Medical Campus and in very close proximity to the University of Colorado Hospital. We do not anticipate other adverse events and will notify participants during the consent process that medical care required for research related injuries will generally be expected to be paid by the subject or their insurance.
