Tinnitus

The effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on tinnitus

In this randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled study, the authors used low frequency rTMS or sham in 64 patients with tinnitus.
Tinnitus

A systematic review and meta-analysis of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) effects on tinnitus

Tinnitus occurs in 10-15% of the world’s population. It may lead to hearing loss, depression, and suicidal tendencies, as well as reduced quality of life. The aim of this study was to assess whether Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) effectively reduces tinnitus handicapping after six months or more of follow-up.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

The effects of supplementary motor area (SMA) repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

Recently, strategies beyond pharmacological and psychological treatments have been developed for the management of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

A review of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) parameters used in obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) research

In this review, the authors discuss the importance of looking for alternative therapies for OCD patients who are either treatment-resistant, unwilling to try psychopharmacological management or cognitive behavioural therapy, or for whom deep brain stimulation would be an overly invasive alternative.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Systematic review of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in neurodevelopmental disorders

Neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism spectrum disorder, are common in children and adolescents, but treatment strategies remain limited.
