Factors to consider when applying transcranial magnetic stimulation of dorsolateral prefrontal cortex when resting motor threshold is asymmetric: A case study

Maller, Jerome; Thomson, Richard H.S.; McQueen, Susan; Elliot, David; Fitzgerald, Paul B.


Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is an increasingly popular tool in treating psychiatric conditions. The dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) is typically targeted for stimulation, with magnetic field intensity being calibrated by establishing resting motor threshold (RMT) at hand region of primary motor cortex (M1 hand). This presumes that scalp-to-cortex distance (SCD) and cortical thickness is similar at both sites. We present data from a patient who had very asymmetricalRMTs (47...[Show more]
