    Deep TMS and Beyond 

    Dr. Kotomori


    This presentation will focus on transcranial magnetic stimulation, the various forms of transcranial magnetic stimulation, the theory behind transcranial magnetic stimulation, and the modalities available commercially in the  United States.  

    Summary:

    Therapeutic interventions with brain stimulation can take the form of electromagnetic induction of seizures, direct current induction of seizures, electrodes implanted directly into the brain, transcranial electrical stimulation, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Clinical use of these modalities at this point is limited to electroconvulsive therapy and transcranial magnetic stimulation and direct implantation of electrical leads in the brain. The mechanisms of action are not always clearly known but I will discuss the theoretical framework that supports their use, the science involved, and clinical importance.

    Objectives:

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Name FDA Indication for TMS
    2. Outline likelihood of response to medications according to STAR -D data
    3. Outline likelihood of response to TMS with similar patient populations
    4. Describe the contraindications and side effects of TMS
