About this book

This comprehensive reference on therapeutic repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) documents the current status in the field. The main focus is the clinical applications of rTMS tested to date, including treatment of paresis, aphasia, and visual neglect in stroke patients, therapy for motor impairment in Parkinson’s disease, and applications for tinnitus and neuropathic pain. Based on the available clinical evidence (RCTs, meta-analyses, and systematic reviews), combined with the personal experience of experts, a clinically oriented best evidence synthesis is provided for each application, together with a clear description of rTMS algorithms that generate clinical benefits in the target domain. A further feature is the presentation of a theoretical model of therapeutic action for each therapeutic target. The book will be invaluable for clinicians and researchers in neurology and related fields, including neurologists, physiatrists, as well as ENT and pain specialists.

About the authors

Thomas Platz teaches as professor for neurorehabilitation at the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt University Greifswald, Germany and is medical director of the BDH-Klinik there with its neurorehabilitation centre and spinal cord injury unit. His main scientific interest is recovery of function after brain damage. He leads the guideline committee of the German Neurorehabilitation Society (DGNR) and the educational committee of the World Federation of Neurorehabilitation (WFNR).

Reviews

“The book is potentially useful to clinicians who provide care for people with neurological conditions, including physicians in neurology, neurosurgery, and physical medicine and rehabilitation, in addition to professionals in rehabilitation disciplines and psychology. … offers a useful, comprehensive but relatively succinct review of the mechanisms and applications of repetitive transcranial stimulation for a variety of neurological conditions. … authors have done an admirable job of summarizing existing knowledge and creating a platform for understanding future research in this field.” (Elliot J. Roth, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2016)
