TMS in Child and Adolescent Major Depression

The Effects of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Antidepressant Response on Cold Cognition: A Single-Arm Prospective Longitudinal Study

Overall, cold cognition in medication-resistant depressed subjects was minimally affected by rTMS, substantiating the safety of rT MS treatment and suggesting that distractions during tasks with low perceptual complexity affected nonresponders disproportionately possibly due to higher rumination levels.

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of depression

Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a first-line treatment for treatment-resistant depression and current evidence indicates that TMS-induced remission is associated with normalisation of connectivity in cortical-subcortical networks.

Vascular Cognitive Impairment through the Looking Glass of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

A perspective of the different TMS techniques is provided by further understanding the cortical electrophysiology and the role of distinctive neurotransmission pathways and networks involved in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of VCI and its subtypes.

Changing Brain Networks Through Non-invasive Neuromodulation

Evidence in a clinical setting is presented to support the idea that non-invasive neuromodulation modulates brain networks, rather than just the local stimulation target, using neurmodulation studies in tinnitus and major depression as examples.

Network-Guided Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Depression

One strategy to optimize the antidepressant effect of TMS is to more precisely target networks relevant in depression by proposing methods to achieve this using functional and neurochemical imaging.



Default Mode Network Mechanisms of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Depression

A framework for targeting alternative brain regions with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in the treatment of depression.

Evidence from electroencephalography and lesion studies suggests that not only is the left PFC involved in depression but also the parietal cortex and cerebellum, and an rTMS-oriented theoretical framework for the neurobiology of low mood and depression is integrated.

High-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation improves refractory depression by influencing catecholamine and brain-derived neurotrophic factors.

It is suggested that rTMS treatment brings about some improvement in refractory depression, especially for symptoms such as agitation, by influencing MHPG and BDNF, which is in accordance with previous reports showing that BDNF was increased by various antidepressants treatments.

Accelerated HF-rTMS treatment designs have the potential to acutely adjust deregulated sgACC neuronal networks in TRD patients and strong rsFC anti-correlation between the sg ACC and parts of the left prefrontal cortex could be indicative of a beneficial outcome.
