This study examined the effect of BrainsWay® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation on schizophrenic patients. In the study, patients were given 20 daily Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation sessions over the prefrontal cortex. The study demonstrated that brain stimulation using the H-coil significantly alleviates the negative symptoms of schizophrenia as well as enhancing cognition.
