We assessed the effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on whole brain dynamics using fMRI. MRI was acquired before and after a single session of rTMS in 30 patients of Essential Tremor and 20 age matched healthy controls. Whole brain dynamic synchronization - “metastability”, and propagation of integration - “intrinsic ignition”, were studied in order to assess brain network topological fluctuations following rTMS. Single subject and group wise whole brain metastability, integration and ignition driven integration was found improve with a single session of rTMS.
