TMS

for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

In post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), intrusive, traumatic, autobiographical memories lead to anxiety symptoms. Recent work suggests a new repetitive pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) brain target that might bring relief. Since this proposed target is not well understood, the goal of the study is to use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to identify the brain regions and networks that change with rTMS stimulation at this target area in PTSD patients. Ultimately, this would lead to a personalized approach to rTMS treatment of PTSD based on brain imaging that can be used in a future clinical trial. Participants will be asked to complete psychological testing and questionnaires as well as an initial MRI and two separate TMS-fMRI sessions. Total participation time across all visits is estimated to be five to six hours. Research participation will take place at VA Palo Alto as well as at Stanford University.
