Testing a New Way to Precisely Target and Predict the Impact of TMS Brain Stimulation for Depression
As non-invasive brain stimulation—variations of TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation)—continues to evolve and is administered to a growing number of patients with depression (and other illnesses,… Read More
“Still Depressed” or “Recovering”? Researchers Find Biomarker Signaling Recovery in Treatments for Severe Depression Using Deep Brain Stimulation
Researchers say they have identified an objective biomarker of recovery in major depression that in a small cohort of treatment-resistant patients was able (on an ongoing basis) to capture whether… Read More
Rapid-Acting Brain Stimulation Method May Reduce Major Depression by Reversing Information Flow Between Brain Regions
In their efforts to understand the beneficial effects of SAINT, an important new fast-acting brain stimulation treatment for refractory major depression, researchers now think they understand why it… Read More
Study Indicates How rTMS Treatments Alter Neural Connectivity Brain-Wide in Treatment-Resistant Depressed Patients, a Clue to Predict Who Will Benefit
Over the last decade, rTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation), a form of non-invasive brain stimulation, has become a first-line treatment option for depressed patients, including those… Read More
Non-Invasive Brain-Stimulation Protocol for Treatment-Resistant Depression Enabled 79% to Experience Remission Following 5-Day Treatment Course
In its first randomized, placebo-controlled test, an enhanced form of non-invasive brain stimulation called SNT (Stanford Neuromodulation Therapy, formerly called SAINT) generated "a large… Read More
