The design and development of coils for paired associative magnetic stimulation are described. The paired associative stimulation technique provides synchronous magnetic stimulation to the brain and peripheral nerves. Because heat is generated in the coil, it is necessary to attain a stronger magnetic field strengths at low discharge voltages. In this study, numerical analyses of coils used to stimulate peripheral nerves are performed to ensure coils can be used continuously and safely without overheating.
