The Influence of Deep TMS on Cerebellar Signs in Patients With Machado Joseph Disease
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
To test the effects of low frequency deep rTMS using the novel HCERMJD-coil on cerebellar deficits in patients with SCA3 and to establish its safety in this population.
Investigator is anticipate that stimulation of the cerebellum with the novel HCERMJD-coil may induce significantly therapeutic effects in patients with SCA3 and will pave the way for establishing a novel and effective treatment for this disorder.
