|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Tinnitus||Procedure: TMS transcranial magnetic stimulation|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||64 participants|
|Official Title:||Influence of Tonic and Burst TMS Characteristics on Acute Inhibition of Subjective Tinnitus|
|Study Start Date :||January 2007|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||September 2007|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||April 2008|
Procedure: TMS transcranial magnetic stimulation
200 pulses of tonic TMS (see Graph 1) were administered with an intensity at 50% of the maximal TMS device output (50%DO).
The frequency of the tonic pulses was randomly chosen between 1Hz, 5Hz, 10Hz or 20Hz.
Burst stimulation was delivered at a burst frequency of 5, 10 or 20Hz. Each burst consisted of 3, 5 or 10 pulses. The individual pulse rate within a burst was 50 or 100Hz.
