Abstract

Up to 40% of people with depression do not recover following standard treatments such as medication and psychotherapy. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a treatment used worldwide for adult patients with severe clinical depression when antidepressants have repeatedly failed to control their symptoms. This article explains the use of TMS in clinical practice.
