Active Comparator: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Actual transcranial magnetic stimulation of supplementary motor areas bilaterally.
Device: Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)
rTMS was administered by means of a NEURO-MS (NEUROSOFT LTD®, Russia) with a focal 8-shaped 70 mm coil. Stimulation parameters were 1-Hz, 20-min trains (1200 pulses/day) at 100% of resting MT, once a day, 5 days a week, for 2 weeks.
Other Name: Neuro-MS Transcranial Magnetic Stimulator
Sham Comparator: Sham Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Sham transcranial magnetic stimulation over the supplementary motor areas.
Device: Sham repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation
The sham treatment was performed using the Neurosoft ® sham coil. A metal plate placed inside this coil prevents the magnetic field from stimulating the cortex. This coil looks and sounds like an active coil.
Other Name: Neurosoft sham coil
