"Kindling" is a term originally used to describe the progression of epilepsy. It is the phenomenon whereby seizures make the brain more prone to seizures in the future. The term has been borrowed to describe other mal-adaptive "learning" processes. Some have used the term to describe the genesis of "fibromyalgia".

Do you think that kindling is a real effect, and that a TMS program helps the brain bypass the sensitized regions?
