How the brain changes during depression treatment -- ScienceDaily

The team found that by stimulating the dorsolateral pre-frontal cortex, several other regions of the brain were also activated. These other regions are involved in multiple functions -- from managing emotional responses to memory and motor control. The participants then underwent another four weeks of rTMS treatment and the team assessed whether the activated regions were associated with patients having fewer symptoms of depression when their treatment ended. "We found that regions of the brain that were activated during the concurrent rTMS-fMRI were significantly related to good outcomes," says Dr. Vila-Rodriguez. With this new map of how rTMS stimulates different areas of the brain, Dr. Villa Rodriguez hopes the findings could be used to determine how well a patient is responding to rTMS treatments.
