Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.

Sham Comparator: Simple acetaminophen treatment
Acetaminophen will be taken when patients suffered from headache during the study. No specific dosage and frequency was required for this group as long as the participants record the exact drug usage.
Active Comparator: Simple acetaminophen combined with low-frequency rTMS
Apart from acetaminophen usage, low frequency TMS (1HZ) will be used in patients three times a month for 6 months.
Experimental: Simple acetaminophen combined with high-frequency rTMS
Apart from acetaminophen usage, high frequency TMS (10HZ) will be used in patients three times a month for 6 months.
Device: - Transcranial magnetic stimulation
By using different frequency of TMS, the device can generate different effects. For low frequency, such as 1HZ, it mainly generates inhibition on the brain cortex; while high frequency (usually higher than 10HZ) can generate stimulation effects. The later one could be used to treat different central nervous disease.
Drug: - Acetaminophen
Acetaminophen is used as the painkiller to alleviate patients' headache before and during the clinical trial. In order to decrease the medication bias, we required these patients to only use acetaminophen instead of other non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs. In the meantime, participants are requested to recorder the frequency and dosage of acetaminophen they used during the treatment course.
