Sleep improvements and associations with default mode network functional connectivity following rTMS for generalized anxiety disorder

Sleep improvements and associations with default mode network functional connectivity following rTMS for generalized anxiety disorder
Sleep disturbance is endorsed by over two-thirds of patients diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD; [1]). Neuromodulation has the potential to improve sleep in patients with GAD either directly (by altering neurocircuitry) or indirectly (by improving anxiety symptoms). A recent randomized-controlled trial (RCT) reported that low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the parietal cortex improved sleep in patients diagnosed with GAD and comorbid insomnia [2]. However, no neuroimaging data were reported. ... read more
