Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the brain has been shown to reduce the effects of treatment-resistant depression, but study results show that intermittent theta-burst stimulation may be more efficient and effective.

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the brain has been shown to reduce the effects of treatment-resistant depression. The treatment, which involves external electrodes that use a magnetic pulse to stimulate specific areas of the brain, with few adverse effects, typically lasts 40 minutes. It was approved by the FDA over 20 years ago.
