The Research and Science Behind MeRT
Magnetic Resonance Therapy, or MeRT℠ is a highly customized treatment using TMS. Much of the third-party research, published in some of the most prestigious scientific journals is listed below. These are peer-reviewed and published studies covering the use of EEGs, rTMS, and MeRT, which form much of the foundation for our approach to treatment of various neurological conditions.
