Brain stimulation as a treatment for depressionHow to take part
About the study
We are looking for participants in England and Wales, aged 18 and over, who have a low mood to take part in our study looking into a potential new treatment for depression.
The study aims to look at whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), could be a potential treatment for major depression. tDCS is a non-invasive brain stimulation method that has been shown to improve depressive symptoms.
tDCS is a portable and safe treatment. We would like to look at whether tDCS could be provided at home as most studies to date have provided tDCS in a clinic.
What will it involve?
- You would be receive the treatment at home 5 days per week for 3 weeks, then 2 days per week for 3 weeks. Each sessions takes 30 minutes.
- There is the option to have EEG recordings.
- We will regularly assess the presence and severity of your depression.
