2. Some, but not all, sources of placebo response have significant implications for the treatment of patients with psychiatric disorders, and we will discuss these with future directions for research.

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.
