Primary OutcomeWe will collect the information on pathological conditions (disgnosis and comorbidity), background (e.g., present history, past history, and treatment history), various assessments (clinical assessment, cognitive examination, adverse events, and tolerability etc.), and conducted TMS parameters and TMS protocols in the TMS database registry. In this registry study, specific evaluation items are not set in concrete terms, but are arbitrary evaluation items that are left to the autonomy of each facility. It is assumed that background factors and treatment parameters that correlate with treatment effects will be explored, but specific assessment items have not been defined. If specific evaluation items are determined during the course of the study, we plan to revise this research protocol and have it reviewed again by the Ethics Committee.
Secondary OutcomeSame as primary endpoints.
