La terapia TMS depressione

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

 

è una procedura non invasiva che utilizza campi magnetici per stimolare le cellule nervose del cervello per migliorare i sintomi della depressione. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven’t been effective.

 

During a TMS session, an electromagnetic coil is placed against your scalp near your forehead. The electromagnet painlessly delivers a magnetic pulse that stimulates nerve cells in the region of your brain involved in mood control and depression. And it may activate regions of the brain that have decreased activity in people with depression.

Though the biology of why rTMS works isn’t completely understood, the stimulation appears to affect how this part of the brain is working, which in turn seems to ease depression symptoms and improve mood.
