Low Frequency rTMS for Treatment-Resistant Auditory Hallucinations in Schizophrenia

Highlights from Posters Presented at the Society of Biological Psychiatry Meeting, April 27-29, 2023 in San Diego:

J. Brunelin gave patients “30 sessions of 1 Hz rTMS (repetitive Transcranial magnetic stimulation) over 3 weeks (360 pulses per sessions delivered with 60 sec ‘on’ and 30 sec ‘off’ at 110% of the resting motor threshold, 2 sessions per day). Stimulations were applied over the left temporoparietal junction.” Severity of auditory verbal hallucinations decreased (p=0.003) including in the 9 patients included with clozapine-resistant symptoms.
