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