What do you think of TMS treatment for depression?
Thanks for sharing the recent article Daniel!
Yup, "cautious optimism" indeed! :)
That's a great question.
There is a review and meta-analysis https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6582998/
The authors note that while there is some promise demonstrated by accelerated TMS on depression, the findings have to be balanced with the knowledge that the studies on this subject are small and thus the findings have to be taken with caution.
Also, future studies need to more accurately utilize sham therapies to eliminate placebo variables.
With this said, there is definitely room for cautious optimism.
