I’ve decided to try going back to posting on my blog more frequently rather than on all the various social media platforms, so you’re going to hear more from me!
This story is definitely exciting to me as someone who has been treated for (treatment-resistant) major depressive disorder for over thirty years. I’ve tried transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and had good results from it, but apparently, this new variation is even better.
An experimental depression treatment uses electric currents to bring relief
The remedy was a new type of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) called “Stanford neuromodulation therapy.” By adding imaging technology to the treatment and upping the dose of rTMS, scientists have developed an approach that’s more effective and works more than eight times faster than the current approved treatment.
