Research to examine effect of targeted magnetic pulse treatment in treating depression

Researchers are to investigate whether an innovative new treatment that targets areas of the brain with magnetic pulses could offer hope to the millions of people around the world who suffer from depression.

The study, funded with more than £1.8 million from the National Institute for Health Research and Medical Research Council as part of the recently established Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre, will examine the use of theta-burst stimulation (TBS) to find out whether it could help those people with depression for whom other treatments have proved ineffective.
