Condition
Intervention

Intervention Type: Device

Intervention Name: Active repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Description: Active transcranial magnetic stimulation will induce real pulses using the transcranial magnetic stimulation device.

Arm Group Label: Active transcranial magnetic stimulation

Intervention Type: Device

Intervention Name: Sham repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Description: Sham transcranial magnetic stimulation will not induce any pulses using the same transcranial magnetic stimulation device but by also adding a sham block device.
