Interventions/Control_1 Repeated transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) with intensity of 90% of resting motor threshold and 900 pulses for one session was given to the following brain regions in the following order at the low frequency (1 Hz).

Key inclusion criteria 1. Boys who were diagnosed as autism spectrum disorder in the clinic of developmental disorders in Osaka University Hospital. The diagnosis was made by specialists in child neurology or psychiatry according to the DSM-V (The Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview, Revised) which is a specific interview form to the parent with ASD, or AODS (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule) which is a specific observation tool for autism diagnosis.
2. Children in whom organic brain abnormality or epileptic abnormality were denied by MRI and EEG examination performed less than two and one year prior to rTMS, respectively.
3. Children with IQ more than 80.
4. Right-handed children judged by Edinburgh Handedness Inventory.
5. Children with age of 10 to 15 years when consent are obtained. Written informed consent should be obtained after the detailed explanation.
Key exclusion criteria 1. Those who suffer from physical comorbid disorders except developmental disorders.
2. Those who have any instrument including metal in the head except oral cavity.
3. Those who have a history of heart, gastrointestinal, chronic renal diseases, head trauma or brain tumors.
4. Those who were instrumented with a cardiac pacemaker, a deep brain or a spinal stimulation or drug-delivery pump.
5. Those who possess intracranial organic lesions and at increased risk for induction of convulsion.
6. Those who have a history of convulsive diseases including febrile seizures, epileptic seizures or epilepsy.
7. Those who take medicine that decrease the convulsive threshold such as anti-depressant, anti-psycotic or anti-histamine drugs.
8. Those who is judged to be not suitable for participating in the study by responsible or contributing doctors.
