Objective:  In response to an increased understanding of the neurobiology of severe psychiatric disorders, new therapeutic modalities are entering clinical practice that involve the direct stimulation of the brain. 
Efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD): a systematic overview of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
The effectiveness of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) is studied through a systematic overview of randomized controlled trials.
Successful ECT treatment after relapse during VNS therapy.
TLDR
A case of a patient with severe treatment resistant depression who relapsed while being treated with vagus nerve stimulation who was safely treated with unilateral ECT concomitantly with the VNS is presented.
Novel Treatments for Major Depressive Disorder
TLDR
Data from a variety of studies have shown that fewer patients achieve remission from symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD) and other depressive disorders after taking the first-prescribed antidepressant treatment than was expected.
Promising avenues of therapeutics for bipolar illness
  • R. Post
  • Medicine
    Dialogues in clinical neuroscience
  • 2008
TLDR
The bipolar disorders, which are increasingly recognized as complex, highly comorbid conditions with a high morbidity and mortality, are not likely to respond completely to any single new treatment agent, and new public health initiatives and research strategies are needed as much as any new single treatment advance.
Mood-Stabilizing Agents
Mood-stabilizing treatments include a variety of types of medicinal agents with important applications in the treatment of bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder patients. Recent estimates indicate that
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.
Efficacy of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation and Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Treating Fibromyalgia Syndrome: A Systematic Review
Objective:  To systematically review the literature to date applying repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) or transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) for patients with

Suicide after successful deep brain stimulation for movement disorders
TLDR
It is proposed that patients at high risk for suicide should be excluded from DBS surgery, and all patients experienced an excellent motor outcome following the procedure.
