Article summary (posted Jun 24, 2010):


Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) may help to improve the behavior of children with autism.

The authors had studied the brains of people with autism before and found that many people with autism have small changes in their brains. Other research has shown that people with autism have problems using their brains to process what they see and hear, and this problem can be studied using event-related potential (ERP). The main goal of this current study was to see the effects of low frequency rTMS on behavior and social function of people with autism. The authors also looked at electrical readings from the brain (EEG and ERP). The study had only 13 patients.
