Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) affects around 2% of the Australian population. The symptoms and features of OCD can vary greatly. The causes are not fully understood, but it is likely a combination of lifestyle and biological factors.
Our researchers are embarking on this clinical trial for a possible OCD treatment, which will restore the neural connections in the brain, and they are seeking participants.
Researchers are testing a new intervention for OCD symptoms. The trial aims to assess whether transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can be used to balance altered communication between brain regions and improve OCD symptoms.
The trial involves use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), which allows for the safe and non-invasive adjustment of brain activity.
Participants are required to attend 24 study site visits over six weeks, along with a 25th visit after six months.
Participants will be offered parking/transport vouchers (up to $40 AUD per visit).
