This case report examines the effect of BrainsWay Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) in a patient that had a language disorder involving changes in the ability to speak, read, write and understand what others are saying. The patient underwent four 20-minute stimulation cycles, including two real sessions and two sham sessions, over five consecutive days. In this patient, both the ability to speak and to write were significantly enhanced following one week of deep brain stimulation, but not following sham stimulation.
