Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy
rTMS is a brain stimulation technique that targets the specific areas of the brain implicated in depersonalization disorder.
TMS administers a magnetic pulse, altering cortical excitability through the modulation of the superficial cortical neurons and the interconnected areas beneath the coil.
When these magnetic pulses are delivered repeatedly, this is known as repetitive TMS (rTMS). rTMS can lead to long-term changes in cortical functioning.
These changes vary depending on the frequency of the stimulation e.g. rTMS administered at a high frequency has excitatory effects, whereas rTMS delivered at low frequency has an inhibitory effect.
As a range of studies have implicated the Left TPJ and the right ventrolateral prefrontal cortex in depersonalization, so these are the areas in which the rTMS is usually administered to treat depersonalization.
Research for rTMS as a treatment for depersonalization has shown positive results
