Parkinson's Disease Research on Brain Stimulation Therapy
If you have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and suffer from both motor (movement) and mood symptoms despite treatment with medication, you may be eligible for this study supported by the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s disease. In this study, we will investigate whether repetitive transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS), a method of noninvasive brain stimulation, can help improve the movement and/or mood symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The treatment is provided five times per week, over two weeks, for a total of ten treatment sessions. The study will be conducted at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, MA. Compensation for your time and for parking at BIDMC will be provided.
