Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Accelerated repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in major depressive disorder (MDD)

This study investigated whether accelerated rTMS could be as effective and tolerable as standard duration rTMS in 36 individuals with MDD. Patients were randomized to receive 3000 pulses of 10Hz stimulation to the left DLPFC either once a day (OD; n = 19) or twice a day (TD; n = 17) for a total of 30 sessions.
Pain

The effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on fibromyalgia symptoms

In this randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled study, participants with persistent (‚Č•6 months) widespread pain resulting from fibromyalgia received either 10Hz rTMS (n = 15) or sham (n = 15) over the left M1.
Stroke Rehabilitation

Low frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over the contralesional primary motor area (M1) in stroke rehabilitation

The authors investigated whether low frequency (1Hz) rTMS to the contralesional M1 might improve functionality after stroke.
Addiction

The effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on smoking cessation

In this randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled study the authors investigated whether 8 sessions of high-frequency (20Hz) rTMS over the left DLPFC could aid smoking cessation in moderately dependent smokers (5-20 cigarettes a day).
Parkinson's Disease

The effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on dysphagia associated with Parkinson’s disease (PD)

We investigate if rTMS has a therapeutic role in the treatment of dysphagia in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
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.
