The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on the left and right temporoparietal cortex compared with sham stimulation in schizophrenic patients with treatment-refractory auditory hallucinations (AH). Thirty-nine patients with schizophrenia with treatment-refractory AH were allocated randomly to one of three groups: daily left, right, and sham rTMS groups. rTMS was applied to the TP3 or 4 regions with the aid of the… CONTINUE READING
