Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS), already approved for treatment-resistant depression, is proving beneficial for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), adult attention- deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other psychiatric conditions, according to new research.

Results from some of these new studies were presented here at American Psychiatric Association (APA) 2016 Annual Meeting.
