Background: Converging evidence points toward the involve- ment of a dysfunctional cortico-striato-thalamo-cortical (CSTC) circuit in OCD. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has been applied to treat and investigate OCD. However, conventional TMS coils lack the ability to target the CSTC circuits directly and treatment pro- tocols for OCD showed …
