Therapeutic Applications of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in the Era of Covid-19
Despite a lot of scientific as well as clinical progress, there is a tremendous need for novel, effective therapeutic interventions to improve symptoms and quality of life in neuropsychiatric conditions. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has received increasing attention as it has shown a promising therapeutic potential for several neuropsychiatric conditions. The main goal of this presentation is to highlight the history as well as latest findings on how TMS protocols can significantly impact quality of life, as well as improve behavioral response as well as cognitive abilities in individuals with anxiety, depression, addictions and cognitive deficits, including Neuro-Covid-19.
