Objectives: To evaluate the therapeutic potential of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for Parkinson's disease (PD) by delivering stimulation at higher intensity and frequency over longer time than in previous research. Promising bene®cial effects on movement during or after rTMS have been reported. Methods: Ten patients with idiopathic PD were enrolled in a randomized crossover study comparing active versus sham rTMS to the supplementary motor area (SMA). Assessments included… CONTINUE READING
