Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Clinical Applications: Therapeutics

The number and type of neuropsychiatric conditions being treated by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is ever increasing. In addition, the parameters utilized to treat these conditions are ever evolving. In this chapter, we explore the evidence concerning the efficacy of TMS to treat a number of psychiatric and physiological conditions: including depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, post traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain, tinnitus, stroke, and Parkinson’s disease. In addition, we outline the most commonly utilized protocols and parameters to treat each of the above conditions.
