Review of high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for post-stroke depression

Takeaway

  • High frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (HF-rTMS) has a positive effect on depression, activities of daily living (ADL), and neurological function in individuals with post-stroke depression (PSD).

Why this matters

    HF-rTMS may be an effective intervention for PSD but further large sample and multi-center trials are needed to verify safety.
