Bloch, Y., Arad, S., & Levkovitz, Y. (2014). World Journal of Biological Psychiatry, (Epub ahead of print).

This study explores the effect of BrainsWay® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) on adults who suffer from intractable Tourette Syndrome (TS). The study enrolled 12 patients and was held over 20 days. The study found no significant side effects, and indicated that Deep TMS is safe for treating TS. In the study, the subgroup who suffered from both TS and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) experienced significant improvement – a beneficial result that also indicates that TS is not of a uniform nature.
