We interviewed Robert Silvetz MD about transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for symptoms of autism, anxiety, depression and other chronic conditions.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a noninvasive treatment method that can normalize neural activity.
It has been successfully used for at least two decades to improve symptoms of:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Poor executive functioning
- Poor language skills
- Compulsive behaviors
- Substance abuse
- “Chemo brain”
- Diminished emotional awareness
- Other psychiatric and neurological disorders
In this webinar, Dr. Silvetz answered the following questions about TMS:
- What is transcranial magnetic stimulation?
- Are there any studies supporting its use?
- How long has it been in use?
- Is it similar to neurofeedback?

About Robert Silvetz MD
Dr. Silvetz’s interest in Individualized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a natural outgrowth of his long interest and accomplished career in both technology and healthcare.
Graduating from Boston University in 1989 with a Doctor of Medicine degree and a BA in both Computer Science and Medical Sciences, he spent the next several years developing and implementing medical software for large healthcare systems.
In 2012, he became the Chief Science Officer and Physician Liaison at Newport Brain Research Laboratory, where individualized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation was first shown to effectively treat symptoms related to autism, stroke PTSD, depressions, anxiety, and stroke-induced dementia.
At the Brain Treatment Center, Dr. Silvetz provided Practice of Medicine support to six client clinics worldwide and provided research and development directly to the protocol in mathematics and thermodynamics.
Returning to the Washington, DC area in 2016, Dr. Silvetz and his wife, Lorraine Silvetz, and partners, launched iSynchrony Clinics, where he is Director.
