Synchronized TMS Treatment Study for Depression

Are you interested in an alternative treatment for your depression? Participants with depression are needed for a research study on the safety and efficacy of a new depression treatment called synchronized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (sTMS).

sTMS is a noninvasive technique that uses low energy alternating magnetic fields set at a patient's intrinsic alpha frequency to stimulate the brain.

Participants will have pre-study screening followed by a 6-week treatment period.

Participants must be:
- Depressed individuals
- Between the ages of 22-65 years of age
- Have not had TMS, DBS, or ECT treatment in the last 6 months
- Without a history of epilepsy or seizure disorder

Contact Jkeonye or Matt at 843-876-5141.
