Treatment of depression with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has shown high evidence using high-frequency left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) stimulation. The treatment of negative symptoms with the same protocol in schizophrenia is considered as possible effective. Theta burst stimulation is a new protocol which is characterized by shorter sessions showing first evidence that it's efficacy is comparable to the high-frequency rTMS. In this randomized placebo-controlled study the efficacy of high-frequency rTMS and TBS are evaluated.
In this randomized placebo-controlled study the efficacy of high-frequency rTMS and TBS are evaluated. The active study arms are high-frequency rTMS and iTBS of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex to treat negative symptoms in schizophrenia. The control arm will include the same number of patients as each active arm and includes both sham rTMS and sham iTBS in the same proportion as the active treatments.
Standards of the trial will be harmonized across four clinical centers with the aim to pool data for analysis. Each center is responsible for ethical approval and adherence to good clinical practice by itself (Sponsor).

Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).
Non-ionizing electromagnetic energy in the frequency range of 100 gigahertz to 10 terahertz which spans from the mid-INFRARED RAYS frequency to the high-frequency edge of the MICROWAVES band.
Electromagnetic waves with frequencies between about 3 kilohertz (very low frequency - VLF) and 300,000 megahertz (extremely high frequency - EHF). They are used in television and radio broadcasting, land and satellite communications systems, radionavigation, radiolocation, and DIATHERMY. The highest frequency radio waves are MICROWAVES.
Frequency and quality of negative emotions, e.g., anger or hostility, expressed by family members or significant others, that often lead to a high relapse rate, especially in schizophrenic patients. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 7th ed)
A common primary headache disorder, characterized by a dull, non-pulsatile, diffuse, band-like (or vice-like) PAIN of mild to moderate intensity in the HEAD; SCALP; or NECK. The subtypes are classified by frequency and severity of symptoms. There is no clear cause even though it has been associated with MUSCLE CONTRACTION and stress.
