Non-invasive brain stimulation includes transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
Transcranial magnetic stimulation or TMS is the application of brief magnetic pulses applied to the scalp. Transcranial direct current stimulation or tDCS is the application of a mild electrical current across the scalp. Both TMS and tDCS modulate the activity of neurons.
Both TMS and tDCS can be used for the treatment of depression, as well as for the treatment of auditory hallucinations.

The show will educate listeners about different aspects of Lyme Disease, including its presentation -- at times -- as a psychiatric illness, and the uncertainty about diagnosis and treatment. They will also discuss the problem of depression and suicidal thoughts in medical illness and why this is an important topic to address in regards to Lyme Disease.

1. ECT treatments started in late 30's
2. Today's ECT is very different than from that of 15-20 years ago. Efforts to make the treatment more focal and physiologic consistent with normal functioning have resulted in a dramatic decrease in the memory loss that accompanied the treatment in its early decades.
3. ECT has the highest success rate of all treatments for depression (There is a 40-60-% response rate with medications comparesd with a 75% response rate or higher with ECT)..
4. Current research focuses on understanding the areas of the brain that are related to symptoms, prediction of response, as well as further reduction of side-effects.
5. Magnetic seizure therapy (MST) is a new potential treatment with magnetically induced seizures that can target brain regions more selectively than ECT.
6. Cognitive remediation, computer tasks that are like exercise for the brain, is being developed to prevent and mitigate the cognitive side effects of the treatment such as memory and problem-solving. Research is also looking at brain circuits to further define possibilities for making convulsive therapy easier to tolerate.
