Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) efficacy in the treatment of major depression has been shown in both low frequency right-sided and high frequency left-sided stimulation over the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the hypothesis of an additive effect of bilateral stimulation(More)
SUMMARY Early studies showed that the latency of P300 (P3) event related potential increases or diminishes when anticholinergic or cholinergic drugs are administered. We tested the hypothesis that new cholinesterase inhibitors like Donepezil (DPZ) may have an effect on the often abnormal P300 of patients with Alzheimer's Disease (AD), and therefore, that(More)
Phantom limb pain is very common after limb amputation and is often difficult to treat. The motor cortex stimulation is a valid treatment for deafferentation pain that does not respond to conventional pain treatment, with relief for 50% to 70% of patients. This treatment is invasive as it uses implanted epidural electrodes. Cortical stimulation can be(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical studies have shown that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is effective in a certain percentage of treatment-resistant depression (TRD). The left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) 10 Hz rTMS stimulation received FDA approval in 2008, although different rTMS protocols have also shown their effectiveness in reducing(More)
