Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Having performed ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) during my residency at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in the 1980’s I can tell you that it is not worth it for people with depression or manic depression or psychosis. It causes too many side-effects (memory loss) and there are too many safer and more effective options. For example: TCMS (trans cranial magnetic stimulation) which does everything that the seizure-inducing ECT does but with no side effects. Read on about TCMS.
Alzheimer’s memory loss reversed by new head device using electromagnetic waves
NEUROSCIENCE NEWS SEPTEMBER 17, 2019
Summary: A new, non-invasive brain stimulation treatment shows promise in enhancing memories and cognitive function in those with Alzheimer’s disease. Transcranial electromagnetic treatment (TEMT) increases functional connectivity within the cingulate cortex. TEMT is also able to penetrate the brain to break up amyloid-beta and tau deposits, slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
