People with severe depression are experiencing hopeful results with brain-stimulation treatment Our February speaker, Dr. Nolan Williams, a psychiatrist and neurologist, is the director of Stanford’s Brain Stimulation Laboratory.
Dr. Williams and his associate, Dr. Keith Sudheimer, are conducting a unique study on transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy. Instead of the traditional TMS therapy, they are studying how accelerating the pace of TMS would affect patients’ symptoms.
