Description

Description

In this project, Dr. Enticott will work with a sample group of adults with ASD who will receive repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), either active or placebo, directed at a brain region involved in understanding others' thoughts and feelings. They will be assessed over various time intervals to determine whether rTMS has improved their social relating ability, and whether improvements can be maintained over time.
