Schizophrenia – auditory hallucinations

A hypofunction of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is typical for this disease. Stimulating this part of the brain with TMS couteracts the hypofunction and supports treatment. Additionally in case of auditory hallucinations, affected auditory regions in the temporoparietal cortex are hyperactive and can be suppressed with TMS.
