Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a painless, non-invasive technique used to stimulate the brain. TMS is already an available treatment for adults with depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The Neuromodulation Core is evaluating the use of TMS as a new treatment for children and teens with conditions like Tourette syndrome, OCD, depression, autism, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics and TMS study

Chronic tics are a disabling neuropsychiatric symptom associated with multiple childhood-onset psychiatric disorders, including Tourette Syndrome(TS) and OCD. Dr. Conelea’s team is testing the use ofTMS) to help young people with TS control their tics. Learn more about the experience of a research participant in Dr. Conelea’s CBIT+TMS study!
