Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Research Program
Note: This study is not currently recruiting
TMS Treatment Study for Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
This study investigates whether Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an effective treatment for GAD. TMS is an FDA-approved therapy for treating major depressive disorder (MDD). It is a non-invasive procedure that applies a magnetic pulse on the scalp. This treatment has been shown to lead to improvements in neuropsychiatric functioning.
As part of this study participants complete a brain scan using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Information from the brain scan will be used to guide the TMS treatment. Study participants are randomly assigned (like a coin toss) to one of two conditions: TMS treatment or a placebo TMS condition during which no magnetic pulse will be received.
