In a recent paper, Yau and colleagues made the very interesting observation that the amplitude of the magnetic field pulses induced by a TMS coil was reduced up to 5% when the coil was placed in certain orientations near or in the bore of an MRI scanner [
]. The authors showed that the reduction of the TMS magnetic pulse amplitude appears related to the spatial gradient of the magnetic field. Yau et al. speculated that the TMS field reduction is due to an interaction between the static magnetic field of the scanner and the TMS coil.
