Episodic future thinking (EFT) is the ability to imagine events to occur in one’s personal future. In this study, we studied the interaction of one rTMS session on the left DLPFC with EFT on the connectivity between areas from the DMN, the hippocampus and the amygdalae.
All participants performed an EFT task before and 1 hour after a real or sham rTMS session during a fMRI scan.
Our preliminary results showed interesting changes in the connectivity between the MPFC and right LP with both amygdalae. However, more data is needed to strengthen these results.
