rTMS for Dystonia and Tremor
“Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) for Dystonia and Tremor”
The study will include subjects diagnosed with Dystonic Tremor (DT), Essential Tremor (ET), and healthy controls in the age range of 21-80 years. Electroencephalography (EEG) will be used as the primary outcome measure. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) will be used over the motor cortices or cerebellar cortices as an intervention that is expected to have short-term (less than an hour) electrophysiological effects.
Device - repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a form of brain stimulation therapy using a magnet to target and stimulate certain areas of the brain.
No application of rTMS
