The cutting edge nature of the field is well served by this impressive feat. Trancranial Magnetic Stimulation in Clinical Psychiatry, Published by American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc. serves as a force for unification as well. The editors if this relatively slim (270 pp.), yet impressively comprehensive volume have brought to gather many of the international leading lights in the field. The well-researched and referenced chapters offer back ground on the basic physics and the electrophysiology behind the use of TMS. * The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease *
