This week, I met up with my professor and the U of A freshman again and we discussed articles Professor Chou found that we could use for the meta-analysis. There were a lot but we briefly looked over each article to see if it fit in the criteria of randomized, sham-controlled, and blind studies. We also looked to see if the articles focused on depression or cognitive functions. If one article focused on depression, it was my responsibility to record and input data into an excel sheet later at home. I observed while looking over those many articles that a lot of them focused on depression. I think that kind of makes sense because researchers often uses rTMS to treat depression in Parkinson’s Disease.
