BACKGROUND Increasing evidence supports an analgesic effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for neuropathic pain (NP). However, the optimal parameters of rTMS (stimulation frequency and treatment sessions) for achieving long-term analgesic effects remain unknown. This study analyzed the current findings in the literature. OBJECTIVE(More)
BACKGROUND Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies suggest that stroke-induced motor deficits are associated with an interhemispheric imbalance of motor activation. This meta-analysis aims to determine the changes of interhemispheric activation balance (IHAB) in motor-related cortices along with post-stroke motor recovery. METHODS We searched(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have indicated that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) could improve cognitive function in people with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Yet the results are inconclusive. OBJECTIVE This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate recent rTMS studies conducted in mild to moderate AD patients. METHODS PubMed, Embase, MEDLINE(More)
BACKGROUND Sleep deprivation (SD) and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) have been commonly used to treat depression. Recent studies suggest that co-therapy with rTMS and SD may produce better therapeutic effects than either therapy alone. Therefore, this study was to review the current findings to determine if rTMS can augment the(More)
