INTRODUCTION Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a noninvasive tool for modulating cortical activity. OBJECTIVES In this pilot study, we evaluated the effects of high frequency rTMS applied over the right inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) on cognitive functions in patients with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or incipient dementia due to Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS Ten patients (6 men; 4 women, mean age of 72 ± 8 years; MMSE 23 ± 3.56) were enrolled in a… CONTINUE READING
