Study Background
The main goal of our study is to improve treatment methods for individuals struggling with OCD.

New interventions are urgently needed to treat OCD, as more than 25% of patients show no improvement with the current treatment methods.

Our researchers are evaluating repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) as a treatment for patients with OCD. rTMS uses focused magnetic field pulses to stimulate specific brain areas.

Contribute to the development of better treatment options for people living with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
