Physical stimulation treatments may provide an alternative therapy. In this review, we summarize the most recent studies regarding repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) for medication-resistant psychosis in schizophrenia. Recent findings Stimulation techniques… CONTINUE READING
