Clinical application of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of insomnia
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation（ rTMS） is a new neural stimulation technique
developed based on transcranial magnetic stimulation（ TMS）. It has been performed on the principle of
electromagnetic induction. It works by stimulating the cortex non-invasively and changing its excitability for
therapeutic purposes. In recent years， rTMS has been widely studied and applied in the treatment of insomnia，
and some curative effect has been achieved. This paper reviews the clinical research status of rTMS in the
treatment of insomnia， by summarizing the relevant studies at home and abroad.
