Exciting New Study Shows That Zapping the Brain ‘Acutely’ Relieves Symptoms of Depression

Post by Thor on Sat Dec 01, 2018 11:14 pm

This exciting new study says that zapping parts of the brain with electricity could majorly relieve symptoms of depression.

Researchers say they have found an “effective target” in the brain for electrical stimulation to improve the moods of patients suffering from the mental condition. Their findings, published in the journal Current Biology, show stimulation of a brain region called the lateral orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) reliably produced “acute” improvements. The effects were not seen in patients without mood symptoms, which the researchers say suggests that the brain stimulation works to normalize activity in mood-related neural circuitry.
