Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been shown in several previous clinical trials to be an effective treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). However, the neural working mechanisms of rTMS in OCD are unknown, and the optimal stimulation sites have not yet been established. Our study aims to compare the clinical and neurobiological effects of three different rTMS stimulation protocols in OCD patients. 8 weeks of rTMS therapy will be delivered in combination with cognitive behavioural therapy. Multimodal neuroimaging will be carried out before and after treatment in order to demonstrate the neurobiological effects of the therapy.
