Welcome to the official website for the Big TMS Data Collaboration.

TMS stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation, which is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that is used for both neuroscience research and the treatment of brain disorders.

TMS is part of a larger suite of techniques described as non-invasive brain stimulation, or NIBS. Other techinques including repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS, which includes theta burst stimulation [TBS]), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS).

Launched in 2020, the Big TMS Data Collaboration involves neuroscientists sharing individual participant data from existing studies to increase sample size and statistical power. It is hoped that this approach will provide new understandings for the field, particularly with respect to the problem of interindividual variability in NIBS and the selection of optimal and consistent methodological parameters.
