Background Gamma (γ) oscillations (30-50 Hz) have been shown to be excessive in patients with schizophrenia (SCZ) during working memory (WM). WM is a cognitive process that involves the online maintenance and manipulation of information that is mediated largely by the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) represents a non-invasive method to stimulate the cortex that has been shown to enhance cognition and γ oscillatory activity during WM. Methodology and Principal Findings We examined the effect of 20 Hz rTMS over the DLPFC on γ oscillatory activity elicited during the N-back task in 24 patients with SCZ compared to 22 healthy subjects. Prior to rTMS, patients with SCZ elicited excessive γ oscillatory activity compared to healthy subjects across WM load. Active rTMS resulted in the reduction of frontal γ oscillatory activity in patients with SCZ, while potentiating activity in healthy subjects in the 3-back, the most difficult condition.

N2 - Abnormalities in glutamate neurotransmission may have a role in the pathophysiology of adolescent depression. The present pilot study examined changes in cortical glutamine/glutamate ratios in depressed adolescents receiving high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. Ten adolescents with treatment-refractory major depressive disorder received up to 30 sessions of 10-Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation at 120% motor threshold with 3000 pulses per session applied to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Baseline, posttreatment, and 6-month follow-up proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy scans of the anterior cingulate cortex and left dorsolateral ...
This is the first study of its kind to systematically investigate the use of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in non-remitters of a selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) followed by an serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) trial with the capacity to identify gene variants that predict rTMS response. The study is similar in design to the STAR*D study in that it will be the third treatment stage for a study of subjects with major depressive disorder (MDD). rTMS is a novel intervention which was FDA approved for treatment of MDD in October 2008 and was not clinically available at the time of the STAR*D study.. The primary aim of this pilot study is to provide 10 Hertz (Hz) repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) applied to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (L-DLPFC) as adjuvant treatment for depression in individuals who have not had a remission of their depressive symptoms after an 8 week trial of an SSRI (citalopram or escitalopram) ...
Background: chronic tinnitus is a disabling, almost untreatable, condition usually accompanied by psychiatric distress. In patients with complex neuropsychiatric diseases as chronic pain, with whom tinnitus shares pathophysiological similarities, placebo effects may be pronounced. Moreover, it may be difficult to distinguish actual rTMS-induced clinical benefits beyond placebo effects in neuropsychiatric patients. Methods: 16 patients with chronic tinnitus underwent a randomized, double-blind, cross-over, placebo controlled trial of 1 Hz rTMS (120% of motor threshold; 1200 stimuli/day for 5 days) of the left temporoparietal region. Patients were screened for psychiatric comorbidity; additionally, anxiety and depression were monitored throughout the study. Moreover, an original placebo rTMS procedure produced the same activation of ipsilateral face muscles (a condition which may per se change tinnitus subjective rating) of the real rTMS. Results: responders were 8 out of 14. Two patients dropped ...
Background: Prefrontal and temporo-parietal repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in patients suffering from chronic tinnitus have shown significant but only moderate effectiveness with high inter-individual variability in treatment response. This open-label pilot study was designed to examine the general feasibility of an individualized fronto-temporal rTMS protocol and to explore what criteria are needed for a more detailed evaluation in randomized clinical studies. Methods: During the first session of a two-week rTMS protocol, we applied different rTMS protocols to the left and right temporo-parietal and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in 25 tinnitus patients. Short trains of 1Hz, 5Hz, 10Hz, 20Hz and cTBS (continuous theta burst stimulation) were applied and patients were asked for immediate tinnitus reductions after each train. If a patient reported such improvements rTMS treatment was applied over 9 sessions with a combined protocol consisting of the most effective frontal

BACKGROUND: The relative timing of plasticity-induction protocols is known to be crucial. For example, anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), which increases cortical excitability and typically enhances plasticity, can impair performance if it is applied before a motor learning task. Such timing-dependent effects have been ascribed to homeostatic plasticity, but the specific synaptic site of this interaction remains unknown. OBJECTIVE: We wished to investigate the synaptic substrate, and in particular the role of inhibitory signaling, underpinning the behavioral effects of anodal tDCS in homeostatic interactions between anodal tDCS and motor learning. METHODS: We used transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to investigate cortical excitability and inhibitory signaling following tDCS and motor learning. Each subject participated in four experimental sessions and data were analyzed using repeated measures ANOVAs and post-hoc t-tests as appropriate. RESULTS: As predicted, we found that

AU - Watanabe, Katsumi. PY - 2009/7/1. Y1 - 2009/7/1. N2 - Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a procedure to polarize human brain. It has been reported that tDCS over the hand motor cortex transiently improves the performance of hand motor tasks. Here, we investigated whether tDCS could also improve leg motor functions. Ten healthy subjects performed pinch force (PF) and reaction time (RT) tasks using the left leg before, during and after anodal, cathodal or sham tDCS over the leg motor cortex. The anodal tDCS transiently enhanced the maximal leg PF but not RT during its application. Neither cathodal nor sham stimulation changed the performance. None of the interventions affected hand PF or RT, showing the spatial specificity of the effect of tDCS. These results indicate that motor performance of not only ...
BACKGROUND:The two human cerebral hemispheres are continuously interacting, through excitatory and inhibitory influences and one critical structure subserving this interhemispheric balance is the corpus callosum. Interhemispheric neurophysiological abnormalities and intrahemispheric behavioral impairments have been reported in individuals lacking the corpus callosum. The aim of this study was to examine intrahemispheric neurophysiological function in primary motor cortex devoid of callosal projections.METHODS:Intracortical excitatory and inhibitory systems were tested in three individuals with complete agenesis of the corpus callosum and sixteen healthy individuals. These systems were assessed using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) protocols: motor threshold at rest, paired-pulse curve, and cortical silent period.RESULTS:TMS revealed no difference between the patient and control groups on the motor threshold measure, as well as intracortical facilitation and intracortical inhibition ...

Objective: We aimed to investigate the efficacy of 20 Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of either right or left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) as compared to sham rTMS for the relief of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)-associated symptoms.. Method: In this double-blind, placebo-controlled phase II trial conducted between October 2005 and July 2008, 30 patients with DSM-IV-diagnosed PTSD were randomly assigned to receive 1 of the following treatments: active 20 Hz rTMS of the right DLPFC, active 20 Hz rTMS of the left DLPFC, or sham rTMS. Treatments were administered in 10 daily sessions over 2 weeks. A blinded rater assessed severity of core PTSD symptoms, depression, and anxiety before, during, and after completion of the treatment protocol. In addition, a battery of neuropsychological tests was measured before and after treatment.. Results: Results show that both active conditions-20 Hz rTMS of left and right DLPFC-induced a significant decrease in PTSD ...
Eight randomized placebo-controlled trials provide further evidence that anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (a-tDCS) may benefit motor function of the paretic upper limb in patients with chronic stroke, say authors of a meta-analysis published online in Journal of Hand Therapy. Prior reviews on the effects of a-tDCS have shown the effectiveness of a-tDCS on corticomotor excitability and motor function in healthy individuals but nonsignificant effect in participants with stroke. To summarize and evaluate the evidence for the efficacy of a-tDCS in the treatment of upper limb motor impairment after stroke, the authors conducted a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials that compared a-tDCS with placebo and change from baseline.. A pooled analysis showed a significant increase in scores in favor of a-tDCS (standard mean difference [SMD]=0.40, compared with baseline). A similar effect was observed between a-tDCS and sham (SMD=0.49). APTA members Margaret Shuster, PT, Kevin Hurley, ...

Saccadic eye movements are driven by motor commands that are continuously modified so that errors created by eye muscle fatigue, injury, or-in humans-wearing spectacles can be corrected. It is possible to rapidly adapt saccades in the laboratory by introducing a discrepancy between the intended and actual saccadic target. Neurophysiological and lesion studies in the non-human primate as well as neuroimaging and patient studies in humans have demonstrated that the oculomotor vermis (lobules VI and VII of the posterior cerebellum) is critical for saccadic adaptation. We studied the effect of transiently disrupting the function of posterior cerebellum with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on the ability of healthy human subjects to adapt saccadic eye movements. rTMS significantly impaired the adaptation of the amplitude of saccades, without modulating saccadic amplitude or variability in baseline conditions. Moreover, increasing the intensity of rTMS produced a larger impairment in the

Pain clinical trial. Clinical trial for Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation as a Treatment for Pain in Parkinsons Disease.
The recent development of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has allowed the non-invasive assessment of cerebellar function in humans. Early studies showed that cerebellar activity, as reflected in the excitability of the dentate-thalamo-cortical pathway, can be assessed with paired stimulation of the cerebellum and the primary motor cortex (M1) (cerebellar inhibition of motor cortex, CBI). Following this, many attempts have been made, using techniques such as repetitive TMS and transcranial electrical stimulation (TES), to modulate the activity of the cerebellum and the dentate-thalamo-cortical output, and measure their impact on M1 activity. The present article reviews literature concerned with the impact of non-invasive stimulation of cerebellum on M1 measures of excitability and
TY - JOUR. T1 - A 2-in-1 single-element coil design for transcranial magnetic stimulation and magnetic resonance imaging. AU - Lu,Hai. AU - Wang,Shumin. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Purpose: To demonstrate the feasibility of turning transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) coil for MRI signal reception. Methods: A critically coupled network was formed by using a resonated turn of TMS coil as the secondary and a regular radiofrequency (RF) coil as the primary. A third coil was positioned between the two coils for detuning during RF transmission. Bench measurement, numerical simulation, and MRI experiment were performed for validation. Results: The signal-to-noise ratio of the proposed 2-in-1 coil is 35% higher in its field of view, compared with a MRI-only reference coil of the same size, made by the same material, and backed up by an untuned TMS coil, but lower than a RF surface coil of the same size without any TMS coil nearby. Spin-echo images of the human brain further validated its ...
As a pertinent addition to the literature, the study highlights several concerns currently facing those in the transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) community. Standing out from the crowdTremblay et al. (2016) investigated modulations of corticospinal excitability within motor cortex as induced by transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Having delivered 1 and 2 mA stimulation for durations of 10 or 20 minutes, they assessed the outcomes by means of motor evoked potentials (MEPs). This may be regarded as business as usual by many researchers. Indeed, there is nothing ground-breaking about the paradigm but therein lies its appeal. The article represents a systematic account of tDCS effects resulting from some of the most commonly used protocols, which in an increasingly discordant field was well overdue.tDCS has become increasingly popular as a result of research by Nitsche and Paulus (2001), which documented the existence of sustained after-effects in humans. However, the explosion of
Many studies have shown that visuospatial orienting attention depends on a network of frontal and parietal areas in the right hemisphere. Rushworth et al. [Rushworth, M. F., Krams, M., & Passingham, R. E. The attentional role of the left parietal cortex: The distinct lateralization and localization of motor attention in the human brain. Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 13, 698-710, 2001] have recently provided evidence for a left-lateralized network of parietal areas involved in motor attention. Using two variants of a cued reaction time (RT) task, we set out to investigate whether high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS; 5 Hz) delivered off-line in a virtual lesion paradigm over the right or left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) or the posterior parietal cortex (PPC) would affect performance in a motor versus a visual attention task. Although rTMS over the DLPFC on either side did not affect RT performance on a spatial orienting task, it did lead to an increase in
Background and objective: Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive nerve stimulation technique that has the potential to improve cognitive function. However, there have been few randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that evaluated the effectiveness of rTMS on cognitive function and the relapse in patients with bipolar disorder. Participants and methods: This double-blind parallel RCT will be conducted at The Affiliated Brain Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University (Guangzhou Huiai Hospital), China. A total of 74 bipolar disorder patients will be recruited and randomly assigned to a trial group (n = 37) and control group (n = 37). Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and sham repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation will be applied over the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in the trial group and control group, respectively. This trial was designed on March 2, 2017 and was approved by the Ethics Committee of The Affiliated Brain Hospital of Guangzhou ...

Negative symptoms in schizophrenia and core depressive symptoms share phenomenology and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a treatment modality for both conditions. The most common treatment site has been the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) but there might be more optimal targets. Furthermore, the implementation of the currently approved protocols is hampered by the long duration. More intense stimulation protocols such as the theta burst stimulation (TBS) are significantly shorter and may be as effective and safe.. The overall aim of this project is to evaluate the treatment effect of TBS on poor motivation and anhedonia in schizophrenia and depression and to explore the neurobiological correlates of these deficits.. The dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (dmPFC) is a key cortical area in networks associated with motivation and anhedonia and it is affected in both schizophrenia and depression. The dmPFC has recently been identified as a possible site of stimulation and is ...

Delivery of intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) can modulate cortical excitability, and if delivered prior to motor training, it can facilitate performance. These effects suggest that iTBS can induce long term potentiation (LTP) like changes within the associated brain areas. However, currently there is a lack of physiological evidence for such processes. Evidence for molecular changes obtained using animal models of iTBS is inconclusive, and methodologically varied. In addition, the use of human sized coil in laboratory rodents further compromises translational merits of obtained findings. Present study is conducted as part of a larger project that uses translational approach to study neurophysiological mechanisms of iTBS in rodents with species specific stimulation coil. Using immunohistochemical analysis of mouse brain sections, changes in presynaptic LTP marker Synaptophysin were investigated in eight animals that demonstrated increased forelimb reaching accuracy over 10 days in a ...
Transcranial magnetic stimulation uses a rapidly alternating magnetic field to induce an electric current in underlying cortex, depolarizing cortical neurons [15]. Transcranial magnetic stimulation is non-invasive and requires no anesthesia. Each treatment involves delivery of multiple stimuli in a series of trains over about an hour. Treatments are typically given daily, five times per week, for three to six weeks (most of the treatment trials described below used 10-20 treatments). Transcranial magnetic stimulation is generally very well-tolerated, though scalp pain and headaches may be associated with stimulation, and seizure is a rare potential adverse effect. [16-18]. Transcranial magnetic stimulation is FDA-approved for the treatment of depression that has not responded to one antidepressant medication.. Transcranial magnetic stimulation has been studied as a treatment for depression for nearly 20 years, and a number of meta-analyses and two large sham-controlled trials have confirmed that ...
Introduction: Intensive task practice assisted by robots is a promising treatment for hemiparesis after stroke. However, not all respond to the treatment, so a better patient selection method is needed. Previous studies have shown that motor cortical responsiveness to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may predict gains from practice and may change with those gains.. Hypotheses: In the first study, we hypothesized that more intact motor cortical pathways would predict better response to treatment, and that motor cortical excitability would increase when motor function improved. In the second study we had the same hypotheses, and: Motor cortical excitability would increase during a single session of intensive therapy, and that this increase would itself predict gains in motor function.. Methods: Study 1: participants in trials of upper extremity robotic rehabilitation in chronic stroke were recruited to have TMS measures for extensor digitorum communis (EDC) and biceps muscles before and ...
Slotema et al Should We Expand the Toolbox of Psychiatric Treatment Methods to Include Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rtms)? A Meta-Analysis of the Efficacy of rtms in Psychiatric Disorders
In a translational setting we investigate basic neuroplastic mechanisms of sensorimotor functions in healthy subjects and their modulation in the presence of brain diseases such as stroke or Parkinsons disease. Different training- and learning interventions are being used and their effect characterized using non-invasive brain imaging techniques (Functional and structural MRI, EEG). We particularly focus on the investigation of neurophysiological mechanisms underlying neuroplasticity-inducing non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) or transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS). To do this we use neuroimaging and brain stimulation techniques both separately and in combination (tDCS - fMRI; tACS - fMRI ...
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)/ Deep-brain Magnetic Stimulation (DMS) is an effective therapy for various neuropsychiatric disorders including major depression disorder. The molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the impacts of rTMS/DMS on the brain are not yet fully understood. Here we studied the effects of deep-brain magnetic stimulation to brain on the molecular and cellular level. We examined the adult hippocampal neurogenesis and hippocampal synaptic plasticity of rodent under stress conditions with deep-brain magnetic stimulation treatment. We found that DMS promotes adult hippocampal neurogenesis significantly and facilitates the development of adult new-born neurons. Remarkably, DMS exerts anti-depression effects in the learned helplessness mouse model and rescues hippocampal long-term plasticity impaired by restraint stress in rats. Moreover, DMS alleviates the stress response in a mouse model for Rett syndrome and prolongs the life span of these animals dramatically

Some researchers are cautious in interpreting the research data [14] as they question the neuronal functional and outcome measure of MEP or RMT. They argue that MEP (and thereby the related RMT) used in most of the research is poorly defined and by itself is a poor and indirect measure of brain changes. They propose the measurement of cortical silent period (CSP) which is the period of suppression of EMG activity from MEP to the return of voluntary muscle activity after application of a suprathreshold stimulus. CSP purportedly is a direct and an easy measure of cortical change Poor quality reporting of research data requires making assumptions while interpretation of the findings [14] and thereby reduces the overall applicability and quality Clinical applicability requires shortening of duration of each session and along with shortening of the overall duration of a course of rTMS treatment. First of these challenges is being addressed through the use of theta (θ) burst stimulation, which ...
Disruption of function of left, but not right, lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC) with low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) increased choices of immediate rewards over larger delayed rewards. rTMS did not change choices involving only delayed rewards or valuation judgments of immediate and delayed rewards, providing causal evidence for a neural lateral-prefrontal cortex-based self-control mechanism in intertemporal choice ...

Reputation formation pervades human social life. In fact, many people go to great lengths to acquire a good reputation, even though building a good reputation is costly in many cases. Little is known about the neural underpinnings of this important social mechanism, however. In the present study, we show that disruption of the right, but not the left, lateral prefrontal cortex (PFC) with low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) diminishes subjects ability to build a favorable reputation. This effect occurs even though subjects ability to behave altruistically in the absence of reputation incentives remains intact, and even though they are still able to recognize both the fairness standards necessary for acquiring and the future benefits of a good reputation. Thus, subjects with a disrupted right lateral PFC no longer seem to be able to resist the temptation to defect, even though they know that this has detrimental effects on their future reputation. This suggests an ...

Kernohans notch phenomenon is the ipsilateral hemiplegia caused by compression of the contralateral cerebral peduncle against the tentorial edge by a supratentorial mass. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) could be useful for exploring the state of the corticospinal tract (CST). This report attempts to demonstrate Kernohans notch phenomenon in a patient with subdural haematoma by using DTI and TMS. One patient and six normal control subjects were recruited. The patient showed severe right hemiplegia even though the subdural haematoma was located in the right hemisphere. Brain CT at the time of onset showed right transtentorial herniation, and T2 weighted images at 6 weeks after onset showed a leucomalacic lesion on the left cerebral peduncle. DTI and TMS were performed at 6 weeks after onset. The fractional anisotrophy value of the left midbrain and medulla of the patient was found to be decreased in comparison with that of the control subjects. On fibre ...
Learning, knowledge, research, insight: welcome to the world of UBC Library, the second-largest academic research library in Canada.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a magnetic method used to stimulate small regions of the brain. During a TMS procedure, a magnetic field generator, or "coil", is placed near the head of the person receiving the treatment.[1]:3 The coil produces small electric currents in the region of the brain just under the coil via electromagnetic induction. The coil is connected to a pulse generator, or stimulator, that delivers electric current to the coil.[2]. TMS is used diagnostically to measure the connection between the brain and a muscle to evaluate damage from stroke, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, movement disorders, motor neuron disease, and injuries and other disorders affecting the facial and other cranial nerves and the spinal cord.[3]. Evidence suggests it is useful for neuropathic pain[4] and treatment-resistant major depressive disorder.[4][5] A 2015 Cochrane review found that there was not enough evidence to determine its effectiveness in treating ...
The lifetime prevalence of major depressive disorder (MDD) is nearly 20%, and up to half of individuals diagnosed with the disorder do not respond to first-line treatment.1 A case of MDD is considered treatment-resistant once the patient has been taking an antidepressant for at least 6 weeks with no improvement in symptoms.. Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) is associated with increased depressive symptoms and more severe educational, occupational, and social functioning, and patients with TRD "are at greater risk of hospitalization for their psychiatric illness, are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, and at increased risk of attempting suicide," according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).. One alternate, non-invasive approach is transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), which was approved in 2008 by the FDA as a treatment option for MDD patients who do not respond to treatment with at least 1 antidepressant medication. Unlike electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), which uses ...
