ABSTRACT:
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Has Been Used In The
Diagnosis Of Neurological Lesions, But Has Also Been Shown To Be
Useful In The Treatment Of Depression. We Have Now Examined
The Effect Of Applying Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Daily For
10 Days In A Sample Of 10 Patients With Parkinson's Disease In
Whom Maximal Benefit Was Being Obtained From Drug Therapy.
The Subjects Were Followed For Six Months And Showed
Significant Improvements Over This Period When Assessed Using A
Range Of Measures. It Is Suggested That Transcranial Magnetic
Stimulation May Be A Valuable Technique In The Treatment Or
Adjunct Treatment Of Parkinsonism, Possibly By Inducing Changes
In Brain Monoamine Levels.
