Collapse Box


Depression after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is very common, yet there is a lack of evidence-based treatment options for people who experience depression after a TBI. Traditionally, a history of TBI has been considered an exclusion criterion for transcranial magnetic stimulation trials because of the increased risk of seizure after a TBI. We present what we believe to be the first case of a patient with depression after a TBI treated with transcranial magnetic stimulation.
