The goal of this study was to examine baseline transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) measures of cortical inhibition and excitability in depressed patients and characterize their longitudinal posttreatment changes.

Negative symptoms of schizophrenia show limited response to both typical and atypical antipsychotics. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation applied over the prefrontal cortex (PFC) has been pro...
Prefrontal repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) repeated daily for 4 to 6 weeks is used to treat major depressive disorder, but more than 50% of patients do not achieve significant resp...
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a safe and painless non-invasive brain stimulation technique that has been largely used in the past 30 years to explore cortical function in healthy participants a...
We demonstrate the feasibility of lowering the seizure threshold using a combined approach of electroconvulsive therapy and transcranial magnetic stimulation. High-frequency transcranial magnetic stim...
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) produces magnetic pulses by passing a strong electrical current through coils of wire. Repeated stimulation accumulates heat, which places practical constraints...
This is a study to assess the effectiveness and safety of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) as a treatment for depressed 13-18 year olds. In rTMS high-intensity, fluctua...

To investigate the treatment effect of continuous transcranial magnetic stimulation on patients with Parkinson disease, and the underlying neural mechanism by functional MRI
repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation has appeared a new non-invasive antidepressant method, which implies non-convulsive focal stimulation of the prefrontal cortex of the brain thr...
This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of magnetic brain stimulation for the treatment of major depression in depressed adults with moderate treatment resistance.
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.
A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.
Failure to respond to two or more trials of antidepressant monotherapy or failure to respond to four or more trials of different antidepressant therapies. (Campbell's Psychiatric Dictionary, 9th ed.)
A technique that involves the use of electrical coils on the head to generate a brief magnetic field which reaches the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is coupled with ELECTROMYOGRAPHY response detection to assess cortical excitability by the threshold required to induce MOTOR EVOKED POTENTIALS. This method is also used for BRAIN MAPPING, to study NEUROPHYSIOLOGY, and as a substitute for ELECTROCONVULSIVE THERAPY for treating DEPRESSION. Induction of SEIZURES limits its clinical usage.
