I'll be listening to this show later. MST on "All in the Mind"

Just thought I'd link to it. I don't know if it'll be any good, but it certainly could be interesting.

(Even if tonight's topic doesn't interest you the "All in the Mind" show archives might be worth a look. It's often pretty good.)

That's fascinating... I wonder how it will pan out - could I perhaps undergo it in place of future ECT treatments?

*Sighs* - yet more stuff to research :\

I'm interested too... but I guess it'll be several years away.

I found the post-ECT confusion pretty tough. It was frightening at the time and I can clearly recall how disorientating it was. So a treatment with comparable effectiveness but fewer side-effects would, of course, be wonderful.

Fortunately there is a link to a PubMed article on MST from the "All in the Mind" page.

It answers the question I had about rTMS inducing seizures. Although in order to get MST to consistently induce an ECT-like seizures for anybody the intensity, duration and hertz all had to be increased. Thus it's much closer to ECT on the spectrum from MRI to ECT.
