Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) by NeuroStar is used to target critical brain regions that are underactive in depressed individuals. It's not an ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
Although the precise cause of depression is unknown, the most widely accepted scientific view holds that it is brought on by an imbalance of the neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that transfer impulses between brain cells in the brain.
What exactly is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy TMS ?
A magnet of the same power as an MRI scanner is used during a NeuroStar therapy session to activate nerve cells in the region of the brain known to be responsible for mood regulation. The brain's neurotransmitter levels may be positively impacted by these magnetic pulses, opening the door to long-term remission.
