PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To disclose a magnetic stimulator (11), which may be used as a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) device and a method for its use. ;SOLUTION: The stimulator comprises a frame, an electrically conductive coil having a partially troidal or oval base (12), and an outwardly projecting extension (14). The frame may be a flexible or malleable material and may be non-conductive. The electrically conductive coil may comprise one or more windings of an electrically conductive material (such as a wire) coupled to the frame. The coil is electrically connected to a power supply. The device (11) may be placed adjacent to or in contact with the body of a subject such as on the head (100) of a subject. The device may be used on humans for treating certain physiological disease, such as a cardiovascular or neurophysiological disease or for studying the physiology of the body. The device is useful in studying or treating a neurophysiological disease associated with the deep region of the brain such, as drug addiction and depression. ;COPYRIGHT: (C)2008,JPO&INPIT
