If I'm going to post abut TMS, I should emphasis its complete safety in terms of cognition and brain function. There are no reports of memory loss or any other cognitive impairments. One study from Harvard actually showed patients performing better on memory tests just after a TMS treatment. Because TMS treatments are now comparable in effectiveness to ECT, the difference in safety between the two becomes extremely important.
I would love to know more about the new, safer type of ECT being done in Australia- the effectiveness rate and the degree of safety. Some of the earliest work on TMS was also done in Australia.
