 Anxiolytic effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation--an alternative treatment option in anxiety disorders
In contrast to major depression, only few studies are available so far on the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in anxiety disorders. In order to summarise available data concerning the putative anxiolytic action of repetitive rTMS, a systematic literature review was carried out. Although interpretation of the results is difficult because of a large variety of used treatment protocols and the lack of a placebo-controlled design in the majority of studies, there is evidence for anxiolytic action of rTMS both from preclinical trials and studies in humans.
