Deep TMS press release:

The double-blind, placebo-controlled study involved a total of 25 OCD patients that had previously failed to respond to both pharmacological and psychological therapy.

The clinical results showed an average improvement of 27% in symptoms of patients in the high-frequency treatment group, which was significant relative to the sham-control treated group (p=0.0003).

From Yale Daily News:

Researchers at the Yale School of Medicine studying obsessive-compulsive disorder are moving closer to personalizing treatments to individuals brains.

The researchers are the first to use functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging to predict whether neurofeedback a technique in which patients are shown a real-time graph of their brain activity while they experiment with various treatment techniques will work for certain patients. Using 13 patients, researchers found that individuals with a stronger connection between the orbitofrontal cortex, a region responsible for decision making that also becomes hyperactive when people become abnormally anxious about dirt and grime, and the rest of the brain respond better to neurofeedback.

Some people will have a certain brain pattern and respond to certain types of treatment, while others will have a different brain pattern and respond to different types of treatment, senior author and assistant professor of diagnostic radiology at the Yale School of Medicine Michelle Hampson said.
