Active Comparator: Active rTMS stimulation
Real active rTMS stimulation.
Device: Active rTMS stimulation

- Clinician's Questionnaire for Auditory Hallucinations (CQAH) is used to evaluate the treatment effect of rTMS on auditory hallucination in schizophrenia. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]The study will test whether the rTMS stimulations reduce auditory hallucination of schizophrenia after the last rTMS treatment session. The CQAH will be used by an clinician to evaluate the auditory hallucination severity of schizophrenia patients before and after the rTMS series.
- Electroencephalogram (EEG) is used to evaluate the brain electrical activities that are corresponding to the treatment effect on auditory hallucination. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]The EEG recordings will be done before and after the rTMS series.
- Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is used to evaluate the brain activities that are corresponding to the treatment effect on auditory hallucination. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]The fMRI scans will be done before and after the rTMS series.
