Neurostimulation for Treatment Resistant Depression

Neurostimulation delivers electrical pulses to the brain to treat patients experiencing depression, Parkinson's, chronic pain, movement disorders and many more. Over the few decades, advancements in technology and neuroscience has produced positive techniques beyond invasive treatments like electroconvulsive therapy that could be commonplace treatments for millions of individuals who suffer from depression and other disorders. 

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive form of neurostimulation that is different from other invasive and deep brain stimulations, which require devices to be implanted into the patient's body. This treatment is the most readily available stimulation method and has clearance from the FDA for depression. Advances from the typical 10 Hz of magnetic stimulation at the dorsalateral prefrontal cortex have showed promising results. However, a newer version of the treatment offers a more tailored approach accounting for the individual's unique neuroanatomy. Intermittent Theta Burst Stimulation (iTBS) is a form of rTMS that delivers more rapid pulses and produces the same results in half the time. iTBS has shown to have stronger and faster positive results than the original protocol.
