This study examined the effect of the Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation on depressed patients, and evaluated separately the effect on depressive symptoms and on one of depression’s core symptoms – apathy. In the study, antidepressant medication treatment was ceased, and Deep Transcranial Magnetic stimulation was given 5 days a week, over 4 weeks. The study demonstrated that brain stimulation using the Deep TMS H-coil significantly alleviates depressive symptoms including apathy, but only if pre-treatment apathy was not very severe.
