OBJECTIVE To explore long-term effects on unilateral spatial neglect of low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over the unaffected posterior parietal cortex. DESIGN Uncontrolled pilot study. SUBJECTS Two chronic-phase patients with left-sided unilateral spatial neglect from cerebral infarction. METHODS Six rTMS sessions were undertaken for 2 weeks. Each session included 900 stimuli applied over P5 at an intensity of 95% motor thresholds and a frequency of 0.9 Hz… CONTINUE READING
