In a pilot study involving methamphetamine dependents receiving deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) targeting the medial prefrontal and cingulate cortices with H7 coil (Brainsway, Israel), we assessed clinical outcomes from patients receiving 20 sessions of dTMS treatments over 4 weeks (5 days on, 2 days off). Although the primary outcome was the behavioral changes related to addiction, we encountered a phenomenon of robust increases in sexual dreams and emission in a patient recruited for this study, which may inform alterations in cortical excitability following dTMS treatment.
