Deep brain stimulation for treatment-resistant major depressive disorder: a comparison of two targets and long-term follow-up
TLDR
The data indicate that, in the long term, both ITP and IC/BST stimulation may alleviate depressive symptoms in patients suffering from TRD.
Deep brain stimulation of the medial forebrain bundle: Distinctive responses in resistant depression.
Deep Brain Stimulation for Treatment-resistant Depression: Systematic Review of Clinical Outcomes
TLDR
DBS for MDD shows promise, but remains experimental and further accumulation of data is warranted, as the published response rate to DBS therapy is reported to be 40–70 %, and outcomes were comparable across studies.
Treatment-Resistant Depression: Deep Brain Stimulation
TLDR
The history and current evidence of DBS at various targets for the treatment of affective disorders and insights into the field are reviewed.
Deep brain stimulation in the treatment of depression
TLDR
Promising efficacy and safety have been demonstrated in preliminary trials in patients with treatment-resistant depression (TRD), and neuroimaging has played a pivotal role in identifying some DBS targets and remains an important tool for evaluating the mechanism of action of this novel intervention.
High-frequency measurement of depressive severity in a patient treated for severe treatment-resistant depression with deep-brain stimulation
TLDR
It is demonstrated feasibility of daily depressive severity measurement at high levels of precision and compliance and Clinician ratings confirm the general pattern of treatment benefit, but mask the marked variability in mood and more marked periods of benefit and decline.
Deep Brain Stimulation for Treatment-Resistant Depression: Towards a More Personalized Treatment Approach
TLDR
It is hypothesize that the effectiveness of DBS in TRD can be increased by a more personalized and symptom-based approach and may be achieved by using resting-state connectivity mapping for neurophysiological subtyping of TRD.
Toward an Understanding of the Neural Circuitry of Major Depressive Disorder Through the Clinical Response to Deep Brain Stimulation of Different Anatomical Targets
TLDR
Deep brain stimulation has been proposed as a treatment for treatment-resistant depression and the target regions with the most evidence to support their use are the subcallosal cingulate, ventral capsule/ventral striatum, nucleus accumbens, and medial forebrain bundle.

TLDR
The results not only support cognitive safety of NAcc-DBS but also stress its beneficial role in augmenting cognitive performance in patients with TRD.

TLDR
The Antidepressant Treatment History Form is presented as one method to formalize the evaluation of treatment adequacy and treatment resistance.
A New Depression Scale Designed to be Sensitive to Change
TLDR
The construction of a depression rating scale designed to be particularly sensitive to treatment effects is described, and its capacity to differentiate between responders and non-responders to antidepressant treatment was better than the HRS, indicating greater sensitivity to change.
MEDIAL FOREBRAIN BUNDLE STIMULATION AS A PATHOPHYSIOLOGICAL MECHANISM FOR HYPOMANIA IN SUBTHALAMIC NUCLEUS DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION FOR PARKINSON'S DISEASE
TLDR
It is hypothesized that STN DBS-induced reversible acute hypomanic episode might be elicited by inadvertent and unilateral coactivation of putative limbic STN tributaries to the MFB, which may provide insight into the neural pathways of hypomania and facilitate future investigations of the pathophysiology of mood disorders.
Microstructural Abnormalities in Subcortical Reward Circuitry of Subjects with Major Depressive Disorder
TLDR
These findings suggest that MDD may be associated with abnormal microstructure in brain reward/aversion regions, and that there may be at least two subtypes of microstructural abnormalities which each impact core symptoms of depression.
