Abstract

Introduction: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation also known as repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a noninvasive out-patient procedure of brain stimulation, which uses a pulsed magnetic field to stimulate specific areas of the brain that are known to affect the mood.
 
Objective: The purpose of this study is to identify the gender differences and variability in the effect of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Twenty two females and twenty one males with Adult ADHD were selected from ReACH Psychiatry, a private clinical setting based in Bangalore, India.
 
Methods: The data was collected from the two groups using the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9). They were evaluated before and after rTMS using PHQ-9 scores and which were further statistically analysed. The data collected was subjected to a descriptive statistical analysis.
 
Results: The means, standard deviation, T-test analysis were done to obtain the results. The results reveal that males and females show an equal response to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
However, females with ADHD show higher variability than males.
