Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation is known to render clinical benefits in subjects with Parkinson’s Disease. Because of dopaminergic depletion the cortical connectivity patterns are affected in PD. This study aimed to inhibit the primary motor area which is an important node in the movement control pathway. The effect was studied using clinical scales and task based functional connectivity. The results reveal the ability of rTMS to facilitate the movement by inducting cortical as well as subcortical brain regions.
