OBJECTIVES Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) improves mood in depression. In this study we investigated whether the depression-related insomnia is modulated by this therapeutic method. METHODS We examined 13 patients (mean age 50.6±13.9; 11 women) with bipolar or unipolar depression. During 20 consecutive days, excluding Saturdays and Sundays, they underwent 20 daily sessions of 10 Hz rTMS over the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). Outcome measurement included the… Expand
Improvement in hypersomnia with high frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in depressed adolescents: Preliminary evidence from an open-label study
RTMS may have intrinsic effects on hypersomnia apart from its antidepressant effects in depressed adolescents, and future work should utilize sham controls and objective, quantitative measurements of sleep architecture to assess effects of rTMS in depressed teenagers. Expand
Transcranial magnetic stimulation therapeutic applications on sleep and insomnia: a review
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a neuromodulatory technique approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in treatment-resistant major depressive disorder. It worksExpand
Sleep-wake, cognitive and clinical correlates of treatment outcome with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for young adults with depression
Preliminary support for rTMS as an early intervention for depression and the need for sham-controlled trials is provided and the first evidence for the utility of cognitive flexibility and verbal learning in predicting rT MS outcome in depressed young adults is provided. Expand
The effects of non-invasive brain stimulation on sleep disturbances among different neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions: A systematic review.
Results from this systematic review indicate that rTMS and tDCS are safe and have potential to improve insomnia symptoms and sleep disturbances across different types of neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases. Expand
The Relationship of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation With Sleep and Plasticity
The interrelatedness of sleep, plasticity, and rTMS treatment is explored, with a focus on sleep qualities that are likely necessary but insufficient for the homeostatic plasticity driven by slow-wave sleep. Expand

Mindfulness decompression therapy combined with transcranial magnetic stimulation effectively relieve anxiety symptoms and improve comfort degree and sleep quality in patients with generalized anxiety disorder. Expand
A pilot investigation of accelerated deep transcranial magnetic stimulation protocols in treatment-resistant depression
Significant and promising results warrant further investigation in larger randomized clinical trials comparing adTMS with the standard dTMS protocol, with rapid clinical benefits during the first week of treatment. Expand
Setting the Rest Interval in Actigraphy - A Systematic Review and Development of a Novel Manual
The proposed manual saves scorers time by screening out a large proportion of the rest intervals, is applicable with high agreement between scorers, produces significant changes to sleep variables, and it reduces noise in actigraphic datasets. Expand


Beneficial effect of transcranial magnetic stimulation on sleep in Parkinson's disease
Disturbed sleep in PD patients may partly be reversed by parietal rTMS, without affecting motor symptoms or mood. Expand
Localized Potentiation of Sleep Slow-Wave Activity Induced by Prefrontal Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Patients with a Major Depressive Episode
The first five sessions of high frequency rTMS to the left DLPFC increase slow-wave activity (SWA) at F3, possibly reflecting locally enhanced synaptic plasticity induced by rT MS, and this increased activity was not observed during the last half. Expand
High‐frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation delays rapid eye movement sleep
RTMS-induced changes in REM sleep variables correspond to findings observed after pharmacological and electroconvulsive treatment of depression, and it is likely that the capability of rTMS to affect circadian and ultradian biological rhythms contributes to its antidepressive action. Expand
Efficacy of adjunctive high frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of left prefrontal cortex in depression: a randomized sham controlled study.
High-frequency left prefrontal rTMS was well tolerated and found to be effective as add-on to standard pharmacotherapy in nonpsychotic as well as psychotic depression. Expand
Efficacy and Safety of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in the Acute Treatment of Major Depression: A Multisite Randomized Controlled Trial
Transcranial magnetic stimulation was effective in treating major depression with minimal side effects reported and offers clinicians a novel alternative for the treatment of this disorder. Expand
Rapid-rate transcranial magnetic stimulation of left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in drug-resistant depression
It is suggested that rTMS of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex might become a safe, non-convulsive alternative to electroconvulsive treatment in depression. Expand
Mood improvement following daily left prefrontal repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in patients with depression: a placebo-controlled crossover trial.
These placebo-controlled results suggest that daily left prefrontal repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation has antidepressant activity when administered at these parameters. Expand
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for treatment-resistant depression: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
For MDD patients with 2 or more antidepressant treatment failures, rTMS is a reasonable, effective consideration and how long these benefits persist remains unclear. Expand
Evidence-based guidelines on the therapeutic use of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS)
There is a sufficient body of evidence to accept with level A (definite efficacy) the analgesic effect of high-frequency rTMS of the primary motor cortex (M1) contralateral to the pain and the antidepressant effect of HF-rT MS of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). Expand
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation as a neuropsychiatric tool: present status and future potential.
The ability of rTMS to control the frequency as well as the location of stimulation, in addition to its other advantages, has opened up new possibilities for clinical explorations and treatments of neuropsychiatric conditions. Expand
