  • Major depression poses one of the greatest disease burdens to modern society and conventional treatments lack efficacy despite a steadily increasing prevalence. A new intervention method using low-intensity magnetic stimulation of the brain has shown promising results, also regarding “treatment-resistant” patients. Magnetic stimulation therapy may therefore become a key treatment for depression in the future. However, its influence on brain physiology is still poorly understood. In order to… CONTINUE READING
