Primary purpose : to assess the effect on neuropsychological tasks related to planning of 10 daily sessions of right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex with High-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on borderline personality disorder (BPD) patients.
Hypothesis : BPD patients receiving 10 sessions of rTMS will have greater improvement in the average number of move to achieve tasks of the Tower of London, than those receiving sham rTMS.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The goal of this research study is to learn if using a type of therapy called repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can help improve chemotherapy-related peripheral neuropath...
It has been suggested that the therapeutic effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) are mediated through changes in cortical inhibition (CI). However, in healthy subj...
This study will examine the effects of high frequency, repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on decision-making and smoking behavior.
This study will be comprised of two Phases. Phase 1 is a randomized, double-blinded study testing repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) versus sham (20 treatments over 4 week...
The high prevalence of cannabis and other substance use disorders are a major barrier to recovery in people with schizophrenia. Moreover, schizophrenia patients have significant deficits i...
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a new type of physiotherapy technology that has been widely used in the research of depression. Although many clinical trials have found that com...
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is an innovative therapeutic option in major depressive disorder (MDD). A complete description of the procedure in reports of randomized controlled ...
Several studies have demonstrated that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) may have a beneficial effect in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Nevertheless, the clinical benefit of rTMS for AD r...
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...
Eating disorders are a significant public health concern accounting for significant morbidity and mortality. Therapeutic approaches are available to treat eating disorders but less than half of the pa...
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.
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.
Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
