Study summary

① I'd like to screen whether participants grind their teeth during sleep. Each participant will use a small device on right side of their forehead during sleep at night for 1 week.

② After that, the participant will be invited to the TMS study and tooth clenching training for total 4 hours (1 session).

Transcranial magnestic stimulation (TMS) :  is a painless, non-invasive device used for many years in research. It is completely safe but it can be little uncomfortable as some participants feel a twitch in their head when TMS is used. You can read more about TMS in the below link:

Exclusion Criteria:

Epilepsy, Metal implants in the head, Pacemaker / medicine-pump, Pregnancy.
