Deep Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Smoking Cessation: Is Going Deeper Better?

Barr, M. S., & George, T. P. (2014). Biological Psychiatry, 1;76(9):678-80.

This report describes a double-blind, sham-controlled trial that used the BrainsWay Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-Coil for smoking cessation. It was found that, when applied bilaterally on the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and insular cortex, the H-coil may decrease short-term biochemically verified smoking and nicotine dependence levels and increase short- and long-term smoking abstinence rates.
