Watching Individual Neurons Respond During Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is used to treat refractory major depression. Until now, there was no way of knowing exactly what changes were taking place in the brain as a result of treatment. Duke University neuroscientists and engineers have developed a way to measure the response of an individual neuron to TMS. Measuring neural responses […]

Targeting Inflammation in Treatment Resistant Depression

Research published in this month’s Archives of General Psychiatry evaluated the use of a monoclonal antibody (mAb) against tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha for treatment resistant depression. Researchers at Emory University studied whether blocking inflammation would be a useful treatment for either a wide range of people with difficult-to-treat depression or only those with high […]
