Repetitive TMS Treatment Study for Depressed Adolescents

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 repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS).

rTMS is a noninvasive technique that uses strong magnetic forces as it stimulates an area of the brain that is thought to be involved in depression.

Participants will have pre-study screening followed by a 8-week treatment period.

Participants must be:
- Depressed individuals
- Between the ages of 13-18 years of age
- Have not had TMS, DBS, or ECT treatment in the last 6 months
- Without a history of epilepsy or seizure disorder
