Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a painless and safe brain stimulation technique that has been found to be effective in treating depression symptoms. The potential usefulness of rTMS, in particular to treat drug resistant patients, might be increased by identifying genetic predictors of efficacy. According to this rationale, we investigated the role of two functional polymorphisms in the genes coding for the serotonin transporter (5-HTTLPR) and the brain-derived… Expand
