USF team uses new neuroimaging technique to study physiological effects of brain stimulation to treat depression
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, or rTMS, was FDA approved in 2008 as a safe and effective noninvasive treatment for severe depression resistant to antidepressant medications. A small coil positioned near the scalp generates repetitive, pulsed magnetic waves that pass through the skull and stimulate brain cells to relieve symptoms of depression. The procedure has few side effects and is typically prescribed as an alternative or supplemental therapy when multiple antidepressant medications and/or psychotherapy do not work.
The first cohort of participants to enroll in the Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training program has graduated with valuable training and certifications in workplace safety and hazardous waste cleanup. The program is a collaboration between the USF Center for Brownfields Research & Redevelopment and the Corporation to Develop Communities of Tampa.
