Here’s a little funny meme. If you have had TMS or know someone who has – then you will get it!
WHAT IS TMS THERAPY?
It is a treatment recommended by the American Psychiatric Association and FDA approved since 2008 for the treatment of major depressive disorder.
TMS uses magnetic waves to activate the DLPFC and works using neuroplasticity to change brain networks and their communication. Effetely if helps reset networks involved in depression and anxiety. This does not affect cognitive functioning such as memory which is very common with Electro Convulsive Therapy. TMS does not require that you take a antidepressant, there it does not have common side effects such as weight gain, stomach problems, or sexual disfunction.
