Deep brain stimulation for treatment-resistant depression: a safe and effective option
TLDR
DBS for TRD might become a first-line of treatment, especially using directional leads, that may help to improve therapeutic effects, and DBS can modulate different targets, and others are under investigation.

Deep brain stimulation in treatment-resistant depression in mice : Comparison with the CRF 1 antagonist , SSR 125543
TLDR
It is demonstrated that bilateral DBS of the CC and, to a lesser extent, pharmacological blockade of the CRF 1 receptor in treatment-resistant mice can attenuate several aspects of depressive-like behaviors, suggesting further that these approaches may represent valid alternatives for the treatment of drug-resistant depressed and/or anxious patients.
Brain stimulation treatments in bipolar disorder: A review of the current literature
TLDR
Brain stimulation in BD is derived from its use in unipolar depression, however, there are many important differences between these two disorders and more studies with a systematic approach need to be conducted on larger samples of bipolar patients with treatment-resistant characteristics.
A Decade of Progress in Deep Brain Stimulation of the Subcallosal Cingulate for the Treatment of Depression
TLDR
A comprehensive overview of the progress of DBS of the subcallosal cingulate in humans and the medial prefrontal cortex, its rodent homolog, for preclinical animal studies is provided and the various antidepressant-like behaviors induced by medial cortex DBS are discussed.

TLDR
Multicenter experience with chronic deep brain stimulation of the ventral capsule/ventral striatum in 17 patients with severe treatment-resistant depression has demonstrated sustained improvements across multiple scales of depression, anxiety, and global function.
Deep Brain Stimulation for Treatment-Resistant Depression
Modulating Affect, Cognition, and Behavior – Prospects of Deep Brain Stimulation for Treatment-Resistant Psychiatric Disorders
TLDR
DBS is a unique and very promising method for the treatment of therapy–resistant psychiatric patients that allows manipulating pathological neuronal networks in a very precise way and in case of the long-term studies underway for MD, patients show a stable response.
Deep brain stimulation as a new therapeutic approach in therapy-resistant mental disorders: ethical aspects of investigational treatment
TLDR
A synopsis of the DBS approach in mental disorders and the hitherto existing criteria for research is provided and some additional requirements for ethically justifiable therapeutic research employing DBS in psychiatric patients are suggested.
Deep brain stimulation for treatment-resistant depression: follow-up after 3 to 6 years.
TLDR
Deep brain stimulation remains a safe and effective treatment for treatment-resistant depression and functional impairment in the areas of physical health and social functioning progressively improved up to the last follow-up visit.
Potential surgical targets for deep brain stimulation in treatment-resistant depression.
TLDR
Surgical intervention for TRD in the form of DBS is emerging as a viable treatment alternative to existing modalities and various surgical targets, such as the subgenual cingulate cortex, inferior thalamic peduncle, and nucleus accumbens, have been shown to be safe and to lead to beneficial effects with various stimulation parameters.
Nucleus Accumbens Deep Brain Stimulation Decreases Ratings of Depression and Anxiety in Treatment-Resistant Depression
Deep Brain Stimulation to Reward Circuitry Alleviates Anhedonia in Refractory Major Depression
TLDR
Preliminary findings suggest that DBS to the nucleus accumbens might be a hypothesis-guided approach for refractory major depression.
