Effectiveness of deep transcranial magnetic stimulation combined with a brief exposure procedure in post-traumatic stress disorder – A pilot study

Isserles, M., Shalev, A. Y., Roth, Y., Peri, T., Kutz, I., Zlotnick, E., & Zangen, A. (2013). Brain stimulation, 6(3), 377-383.

This study examined the effect of Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) on PTSD patients, following activation of the traumatic memory. In this double-blind study, patients who received real stimulation showed substantial improvement in the intrusive component of the CAPS scale, after exposure to the traumatic event script. The study demonstrated that the H-coil significantly alleviated PTSD symptoms following memory activation, but not following non-provoked or sham stimulations.
