Deep Brain Stimulation of the Medial Forebrain Bundle in a Rodent Model of Depression: Exploring Dopaminergic Mechanisms with Raclopride and Micro-PET.

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the medial forebrain bundle (MFB) can reverse depressive-like symptoms clinically and in experimental models of depression, but the mechanisms of action are unknown.

Endocrine and immune effects of non-convulsive neurostimulation in depression: A systematic review.

Non-convulsive neurostimulation is a rapidly-developing alternative to traditional treatment approaches in depression. Modalities such as repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), transcran...

Long versus short pulse width subcallosal cingulate stimulation for treatment-resistant depression: a randomised, double-blind, crossover trial.

Stimulation adjustment is required to optimise outcomes of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for treatment-resistant depression, but controlled data for ideal stimulation parameters are poor or insufficien...

Clinical trials for deep brain stimulation: Current state of affairs.

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical neuromodulation procedure with a historically wide range of possible therapeutic indications, including movement disorders, neuropsychiatric conditions, and ...

Putting deep brain stimulation for depression in a wider perspective.

Clinical Trials [13559 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Deep Brain Stimulation for Treatment-Refractory Major Depression

This study will investigate the use of deep brain stimulation (DBS) to reduce symptom severity and enhance the quality of life for patients with treatment-refractory major depression.

Electrical Stimulation of the Internal Capsule for Intractable Depression

This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of deep brain stimulation in treating people with several and otherwise treatment-resistant depression.

Effect of Deep Brain Stimulation on Gastrointestinal (GI) Motility

Parkinson's disease is characterized by extra-pyramidal symptoms as well as digestive involvement with gastrointestinal motility (GI) impairment. Deep brain stimulation has been recently d...

Effect of Deep Brain Stimulation on Depression and Quality of Life in Parkinson’s Patients

We will evaluate the effect of deep brain stimulation on the depression and quality of life in Parkinson’s disease. We aim to compare depression pre-operatively and post-operatively in ...

Deep Brain Stimulation for Treatment Resistant Depression

The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the safety, feasibility and efficacy of chronic, high frequency stimulation of the subgenual cingulate white matter (Cg25WM) using the ANS ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.

Therapy for MOVEMENT DISORDERS, especially PARKINSON DISEASE, that applies electricity via stereotactic implantation of ELECTRODES in specific areas of the BRAIN such as the THALAMUS. The electrodes are attached to a neurostimulator placed subcutaneously.

Drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients cannot be easily aroused but respond purposely following repeated painful stimulation. The ability to independently maintain ventilatory function may be impaired. (From: American Society of Anesthesiologists Practice Guidelines)

Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.

An adjunctive treatment for PARTIAL EPILEPSY and refractory DEPRESSION that delivers electrical impulses to the brain via the VAGUS NERVE. A battery implanted under the skin supplies the energy.
