Summary

Ultrabrief pulse stimulation is a new advance in electroconvulsive therapy and results in more focal stimulation. An ultrabrief pulse given in the right unilateral position retains the high efficacy of standard electroconvulsive therapy for depression.
Cognitive adverse effects are greatly reduced. Studies of ultrabrief electroconvulsive therapy found that cognition was either unchanged or even improved, after the course of treatment.
The efficacy and cognitive adverse effects of ultrabrief electroconvulsive therapy in disorders other than depression need further examination.
