Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation is a non-invasive neuromodulation technique used to treat different neuropsychiatric disorders, such as, depression, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia and obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is known that the heart rate variability is altered in these conditions. Therefor the focus of this research is to show the influence of rTMS on the Heart Rate Variability. (AU)
