George, M.D., from the Medical University of South Carolina, presented and spoke about Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a breakthrough treatment for depression that he pioneered with the support of NARSAD Grant funding. Participants had the opportunity to submit questions and hear responses directly from Dr. George during the Q&A section of the webinar.

I have been suffering with depression, panic attacks and anxiety for the majority of my life. I was not diagnosed with panic attacks until I was about 25 yrs of age. Since then i have been on medication for depression and anxiety.

I missed this webinar. Can anybody tell me that what exactly was shared in this webinar? What were the treatments for depression? Is there any medicine for it or some exercises are recommended by the presenter? I read some depression quotes and I feel that it can be treated with communication and exercises rather than medicine. In my opinion reading motivational quotes or books, good communication and meditation is the best solution to remove the depression. But still I want to listen from others also. Please share your ideas.


The webinar was recorded and can be viewed on our YouTube page anytime: Hope this helps.

Thanks from your friends at the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation.
