Table 1 Pschometric measures of effect for DMPFC-rTMS in AN

From: A pilot trial of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex in anorexia nervosa: resting fMRI correlates of response

Variable Pre-treatment Post-treatment p-value
EDE global 4.12 3.35 .010**
 EDE restraint 3.65 3.21 .095
 EDE eating concerns 3.92 3.52 .054
 EDE shape concerns 4.64 3.63 .042*
 EDE weight concerns 4.23 3.35 .024*
BDI 36.16 30.24 .041*
HAM-D 15.50 14.28 .066
BAI 23.43 12.87 <.001*
DERS 115.33 117.00 .594
Age at start of treatment 21–56, mean 31.2 ± SD 9.8
Body Mass Index 14.5–18.5, mean 16.4 ± SD 1.3
  1. Significant improvements were seen in the EDE global score and the BAI, after Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons (** = p < 0.05, corrected). Considering uncorrected p-values in an exploratory fashion, the EDE subscales for shape and weight concerns as well as the BDI showed significant improvement (* = p < 0.05, uncorrected)
