Magnetic Field Device May Zap Away Migraines

Some migraine sufferers may be able to avoid medication by zapping away their pain with a hand-held magnetic device, new research suggests. The hair dryer-size device, called a transcranial magnetic stimulation device, delivers brief magnetic impulses to the brain. The researchers, who presented their results today at the American Headache Society meeting in Boston, hypothesized that the magnetic field pulses could short-circuit the pain signals in the brain. "I think for migraine, it's...Full Story
