TMS Study



Enhancing Relapse Prevention for Smoking Cessation with Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)


Christine Sheffer, PhD, Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, City College of New York


Many smokers make multiple quit attempts, but most reverse this decision and relapse to smoking again within one year. This project seeks to improve the knowledge of these decision making processes and potentially improve the treatment of tobacco dependence by examining the feasibility of using a brain stimulation technique, rTMS, to improve the efficacy of a brief treatment for tobacco dependence.
