Many research studies over the past two decades have examined the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation in the management of depression. The early studies contributed important infomation about aspects of effective dose, stimulation parameters, safety, and tolerability. The meta-analytic review paper by Gross and colleagues (2007) helps summarize much of this work. The papers by O'Reardon et al (2007), Janicak et al (2008), Avery et al (2008), and Lisanby et al (2009) present findings from studies using the Neuronetics NeuroStar system.
