Investigating the Effect of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) as a Treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease
Goal of this study
To treat Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disease that gradually destroys memory and thinking skills. This study will examine the efficacy of a technique named repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease in patients diagnosed with early or moderate Alzheimer’s disease. Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation consists of applying magnetic pulses through the skull to activate neurons. Treatments will be administered daily (5 days/week) for either 2 weeks or 4 weeks.
