What we found

In this study our team demonstrate the accuracy and reliability of our methods in determining the personalised stimulation site for TMS. We show that the personalised stimulation site is predicted by the individual’s genetic make-up.
This finding may account for why the personalised stimulation site for each individual remained stable over a 1 year follow-up period.
