This study examined the effect of BrainsWay® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation on auditory hallucinations of schizophrenic patients. Low-frequency Deep TMS was used to stimulate the left temporoparietal cortex over 10-20 sessions. The study showed a substantial improvement in HRS score as well as a smaller improvement in SAPS. The study demonstrated that Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation using the H-coil significantly alleviates positive symptoms of schizophrenia.
