The article highlights several studies related to neurology. Italian researchers reported that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can be used for treating the spasticity which is often seen with multiple sclerosis. A study revealed that galantamine treatment reduces verbal repetition in Alzheimer's disease. Another study investigated the behavioral manifestations of frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD), dementia, and Alzheimer's disease.

    Exercise therapy (ET) can be beneficial in disabled multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Intermittent transcranial magnetic theta burst stimulation (iTBS) induces long-term excitability changes of the cerebral cortex and may ameliorate spasticity in MS. We investigated whether the combination of...
