New neuroimaging technique studies brain stimulation for depression
4 days ago - By ScienceDaily
Despite increased use of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in psychiatry, the rates at which patients respond to the therapy and experience remission of often-disabling symptoms have been modest at best. Now, a team of psychiatrists and biomedical engineers applied an emerging functional neuroimaging technology, known as diffuse optical tomography , to better understand how rTMS works so they can begin to improve the brain stimulation procedure's effectiveness in treating depression.

A small coil positioned near the scalp generates repetitive, pulsed magnetic waves that pass through the skull and stimulate brain cells to relieve symptoms of depression.
