On Demand Webinar: Wednesday Lecture Series: Research Advances in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Depression: A Clinical Perspective

This presentation was originally reviewed on June 3, 2021, and broadcast live online on June 2, 2021, from 12:00 noon - 1:00 PM EST. 

The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a noninvasive brain stimulation treatment for depression received regulatory approval over a decade ago. It has become a standard of care for depressed patients who do not benefit from other treatments and is now widely available. The number of studies applying TMS as both a research tool and as a therapeutic intervention has expanded tremendously in recent years, generating many scientific insights that currently (or soon will) impact clinical care with TMS. Research advances related to how we target the brain location for stimulation, what “dose” we prescribe, and how we select parameters for delivery of magnetic energy into the brain will be reviewed in this presentation. We will also identify significant persisting gaps in the evidence base and how research underway may inform TMS therapy for depression and other neuropsychiatric disorders.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe 3 key aspects of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy.
  2. Explain gaps in the evidence base related to common clinical questions surrounding TMS treatment for depression.
  3. Discuss research innovations that have or promise to impact the practice of TMS clinical care in the future.

About This Speaker

Dr. Carpenter is a Professor of Psychiatry in the Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Chief of the Mood Disorders Program at Butler Hospital. Dr. Carpenter completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan, her MD from the University of Pennsylvania, and internship in internal medicine, a residency program in psychiatry, and a clinical neuroscience research fellowship at Yale University. She joined the faculty at Brown in 1997 and has continued her path as a physician-scientist investigating the neurobiology of, and new treatments for, major depression and other mood and anxiety disorders. She led a 10-year, federally funded translational research program focusing on the development of laboratory biomarkers signaling risk for mood/anxiety disorders, and understanding the impact of early life stress on adult biology. She has also conducted a number of randomized clinical trials sponsored by industry and NIH, investigating investigational drugs and devices for treating depression, including Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS), Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS). She is the founding Director of the Butler Hospital TMS Clinic and Neuromodulation Research Facility where she treats patients with pharmacoresistant depression and works with a variety of Brown-based research faculty who incorporate noninvasive brain stimulation techniques into their clinical research. He current research projects involve using imaging and EEG biomarkers to optimize and individually customize TMS therapy for depression.
