In this review, we explore the evidence concerning the efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to treat negative symptoms of schizophrenia. 
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Schizophrenia
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a method that can be used in neurophysiological research of schizophrenia and in the treatment of some symptoms or syndromes of this mental disorder. TheExpand
Repeated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation as a Successful Augmentation Strategy in a Patient with First Episode Psychosis
TLDR
It is suggested that rTMS is a well-tolerated treatment that may not be reserved only for treatment resistant patients but may also be considered early on in the management of psychiatric disorders. Expand

Efficacy of adjuvant high frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on negative and positive symptoms of schizophrenia: preliminary results of a double-blind sham-controlled study.
TLDR
Compared to sham, active rTMS significantly improved negative symptoms, irrespective of change in depressive symptoms, in negative symptoms of schizophrenia in a double-blind sham-controlled design. Expand
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of chronic negative schizophrenia: a pilot study
TLDR
This pilot study aimed to assess the possible adverse effects of this treatment in chronic schizophrenic patients with severe negative symptoms, and to evaluate if direct RTMS of the prefrontal cortex might improve negative symptoms or cognitive impairments in patients with chronic schizophrenia.

TLDR
Real rT MS was not found to be better than sham rTMS in alleviating negative symptoms of schizophrenia although it was associated with some improvement in aspects of cognitive function at follow-up. Expand

TLDR
It is likely that clinicians soon will have a new treatment tool, unlike virtually anything they are familiar with, according to the editors of this review of depression treatment manuals. Expand

TLDR
Beneficial effects of high-frequency rTMS on negative and depressive symptoms were found, together with a trend for worsening positive symptoms in schizophrenic patients. Expand
Effects of 10 Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on clinical global impression in chronic schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest a moderate - potentially clinically relevant - treatment effect of prefrontal 10 Hz rTMS stimulation in chronic patients, however, in this study this beneficial effect was restricted to subjects with pronounced negative symptoms. Expand

TLDR
High-frequency rTMS stimulation over the left DLPFC at a high stimulation intensity with a sufficient number of applied stimulating pulses may represent an efficient augmentation of antipsychotics in alleviating the negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Expand

TLDR
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, particularly the TBS stimulation protocol for rTMS, is a safe and effective treatment method for patients with schizophrenia who have prominent negative symptoms. Expand

TLDR
The results of this meta-analysis warrant further study of rTMS as a potential treatment of negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Expand
