  1. rTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation) study

    Apparently the manufacturer of the rTMS coils in funding research in 8 hospitals across Canada, including the Clarke in Toronto. CAMH is advertising in the Globe for volunteers.

    I've received this treatment, which is noneinvasive and almost painless, and it has worked, although I do need to go back on a regular basis for maintainance. I'd recommend it highly to anyone who wants to reduce/eliminate drugs. The success rate is reported to be about 50% very good, 20% improvement, and 30% no impact. It does require a substantial time commitment, depending on the research, but it may be a life saver for many readers of this forum.

    Thanks for this information, attical.

    Can you post a website and/or email address and/or telephone number for people to get more information?

  3. rTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation) study

    Unfortunately, our newspapers were picked up for recycling this morning. I'll try to find out the number through CAMH.

    I'm not sure if you're still following these threads, attical, but we've had an enquiry about the project and I just realized that's an incomplete phone number (missing a digit). Do you have any additional information?

    Whoops! Sorry. The complete number is 1 888 909 4949. There was an rTMS conference in Atlanta recently, with some positive developments in research.
