Some neurological and psychiatric disorders present with disabling symptoms for which presently effective, mechanism-based treatments are lacking. As a result, researchers all over the world are searching and evaluating newer drugs and also more advanced non-invasive therapeutic methods. One of these methods that modulate brain activity and may be useful in clinical practice is repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). In this non-invasive procedure stimulation of electrical activity in the brain takes place through a pulsed magnetic field. rTMS is being evaluated for number of disorders all over the world. Apart from its use in assessment of aspects of human brain physiology, it has been found to be useful in a number of Neuropsychiatric conditions [1].
