What is iTBS?
iTBS is a type of transcranial magnetic stimulation. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnets on top of your head to change brain activity.

Attention training will be completed immediately after each iTBS session. A research assistant will set up a computer program where you will complete the training.

You will complete testing throughout your participation that includes filling out questionnaires about your symptoms and activities of daily living, tests of your thinking and memory skills, and will have an MRI completed three different times during your participation.
Can my doctor get the results of my tests?
Testing results will be reviewed with you at the end of your participation in the study and can be shared with your physician. MRI images are not available in a readable format to be given to you, but you would be notified if any concerning findings were noted.
How long are study sessions?
Sessions vary in length depending on what is being performed that day, but last approximately a half to full day. We will work to complete your schedule at the start of participation, so that you know when and for how long you would be needed each day.
