Using Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to Modulate Response Inhibition in Tourette Syndrome

Status: Recruiting
Location: See location...
Intervention Type: Device
Study Type: Interventional
Study Phase: Not Applicable
SUMMARY

Tics are the hallmark symptoms in Tourette Syndrome. Patients with Tourette Syndrome have difficulties controlling unwanted movements. The ability to control the motor system involves the pre-supplementary motor area (pre-SMA) in the brain. In this study, we will use Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to modulate the pre-SMA and determine effect on the ability to stop an unwanted action in a behavior task (stop signal task).
