Simulated electric field distribution for right-unilateral electroconvulsive therapy (left) and magnetic seizure therapy with cap coil (right) in rhesus macaque. The stimulus current amplitude is titrated in vivo to induce a seizure. Green, yellow, and red colors correspond to electric field strength above the estimated neural activation threshold.
