Long-term maintenance of the analgesic effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation in fibromyalgia
&NA; We assessed for the first time the long‐term maintenance of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS)‐induced analgesia in patients with chronic widespread pain due to fibromyalgia.Expand

The use of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to relieve pain
Chronic pain resulting from injury of the peripheral or central nervous system may be associated with a significant dysfunction of extensive neural networks. Noninvasive stimulation techniques, suchExpand

Alteration of cortical excitability in patients with fibromyalgia
&NA; We assessed cortical excitability and intracortical modulation systematically, by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the motor cortex, in patients with fibromyalgia. In total 46 femaleExpand

Diffuse analgesic effects of unilateral repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in healthy volunteers
ABSTRACT We investigated the analgesic effects of unilateral repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the motor cortex (M1) or dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in two models ofExpand

Neuropharmacological basis of rTMS-induced analgesia: The role of endogenous opioids
&NA; We investigated the role of endogenous opioid systems in the analgesic effects induced by repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). We compared the analgesic effects of motor cortexExpand
