Transcranial magnetic stimulation or TMS is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique. Rather than implant electrodes into the brain to write electrical signals back to it, pulses are administered by passing high currents through an electromagnetic coil placed adjacent to a patient's scalp.

In effect, non-invasive BMI for writing to the brain, not reading from it.

TMS is limited, to only near surface areas of the brain. For deep brain writing, a different technique, deep TMS is used.
