Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS): What is it?
Dr. Shahla Modir:
It's a cutting-edge treatment for people who suffer from treatment-resistant depression. That's depression that hasn't responded to at least one or more of the medications available. And the way that it works is it uses a magnet coil. And that magnet coil is sending a stimulation signal to the parts of the area of the brain that are associated with depression. And repeat the experience of this magnet has been shown to have proved people's depression and actually show brain changes.
