TMS for Adolescent Treatment-Resistant Depression

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) for Adolescent Treatment-Resistant Depression

We are seeking adolescents (age 12-18 years) with depression that has not improved with at least 1 medication to participate in a research study at the University of Minnesota.

Study activities include clinical interviews, 20 sessions (5 days/week, ~20 minutes/day) of either repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) or sham, and 2 brain MRI scans. After the 20 sessions, all participants will be told if they had gotten active rTMS or sham, and will have the option of participating in a second phase to receive active rTMS (no sham).

For more information and to find out if you or your child would qualify for our study, please call 612-626-8534.
