How deep transcranial magnetic stimulation changed one woman's life
TMS Before and after
Kristin Hooker was severely depressed and got TMS, this is her story.
She went back for another round of TMS and this is what she told:
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: A New Treatment Approach for Psychiatric Disorders
This presentation by Tracy Barbour, MD, was part of the patient education program “Outside the Box in Psychosis Treatment: Towards Stage-based and Symptom-targeted Interventions” featuring specialists from Mass General’s Schizophrenia Program. The 30-minute presentation gets a little technical and details but provides great background on TMS and its uses.
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) and Hand Therapy
A general introduction from UMN Health on TMS for recovery from brain injury and specifically hand therapy. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), combined with hand therapy, is currently a research-based treatment. It is intended to help people with stroke achieve greater recovery of hand function. TMS is intended to be combined with physical therapy to boost brain recovery and restore function.
rTMS for Autism Spectrum Disorder
A video from CAMH on CAMH on TMS as an experimental treatment for youth with autism spectrum disorder.
rTMS: An Update on Recent Progress in Toronto
This is a technical scientific presentation covering advances in TMS around 2014. It might also be of interest to patients interested in a deeper dive on TMS techniques and mechanisms. Dr. Jonathan Downar lectures on progress in using rTMS to treat depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, and eating disorders at the Toronto Western Hospital. Some new techniques allow significantly faster, possibly cheaper, and more effective treatment for a much larger spectrum of patients. Recent brain-imaging research also sheds light on how TMS treats psychiatric illness, and may support MRI-based tests for predicting who will respond and how to optimize treatment to individual patients.
