Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a noninvasive form of brain stimulation in which a changing magnetic field is used to cause electric current at a specific area of the brain through electromagnetic induction. Given that symptom improvement is seen with increases in the Insula and Salient Network regions, targeting these areas through TMS may be an effective form of treating DPDR.

  • Treating DPDR with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulations on affected brain regions showed a significant reduction in a patient’s depersonalization symptoms. TMS for treatment of DPD should be further explored. [1]
  • A recent study showed that a single session of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation administered to affected brain regions significantly reduced symptoms of depersonalization. [2] [3] [4]
