  • Deep TMS in a resistant major depressive disorder: a brief report

    Rosenberg, O., Shoenfeld, N., Zangen, A., Kotler, M., & Dannon, P. N. (2010). Depression and anxiety, 27(5), 465-469.

    This study examined the effect of the Brainsway® Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation H-coil as an add-on treatment for patients suffering from drug-resistant depression. The study comprised depression patients, and treated them with Brainsway Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation H1-coil, which was connected to a Magstim rapid 2 stimulator.

  • H-coil repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for the treatment of bipolar depression: an add-on, safety and feasibility study

    Harel, E. V., Zangen, A., Roth, Y., Reti, I., Braw, Y., & Levkovitz, Y. (2011). World Journal of Biological Psychiatry, 12(2), 119-126.

    This study examined the effect of the Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil as an add-on treatment for patients suffering from bipolar depression. In the study, bipolar depression patients who were under medication treatment received daily rTMS for four consecutive weeks. The study demonstrated that adding brain stimulation using the Brainsway Deep TMS H-coil results in significant alleviation of symptoms.

  • Effectiveness of a second deep TMS in depression: A brief report

    Rosenberg, O., Isserles, M., Levkovitz, Y., Kotler, M., Zangen, A., & Dannon, P. N. (2011). Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry, 35(4), 1041-1044.

    This study examined the effect of the Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation on depressed patients which previously benefited from the treatment but suffered from deterioration. The patients were given 20 daily sessions of stimulation, resulting in a significant decrease in HDRS, HARS and BDI scores, although at a lesser rate compared to the decrease during the first Deep TMS treatment period. In this study it was demonstrated that a second treatment period of brain stimulation using the H-coil significantly alleviates depressive symptoms.

  • Differential effects of deep TMS of the prefrontal cortex on apathy and depression‏

    Levkovitz, Y., Sheer, A., Harel, E. V., Katz, L. N., Most, D., Zangen, A., & Isserles, M. (2011). Brain stimulation, 4(4), 266-274.

    This study examined the effect of the Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation on depressed patients, and evaluated separately the effect on depressive symptoms and on one of depression's core symptoms - apathy. In the study, antidepressant medication treatment was ceased, and Deep Transcranial Magnetic stimulation was given 5 days a week, over 4 weeks. The study demonstrated that brain stimulation using the Deep TMS H-coil significantly alleviates depressive symptoms including apathy, but only if pre-treatment apathy was not very severe.

  • Cognitive – emotional reactivation during deep transcranial magnetic stimulation over the prefrontal cortex of depressive patients affects antidepressant outcome

    Isserles, M., Rosenberg, O., Dannon, P., Levkovitz, Y., Kotler, M., Deutsch, F., & Zangen, A. (2011). Journal of affective disorders, 128(3), 235-242.

    This study examined the effect of the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation H-coil on patients suffering from depression, following positive or negative emotional triggering. This was done by focusing the patients on either positive or negative thoughts or emotions associated with the patient's depression. In this study, it was demonstrated that positive, rather than negative, emotional triggering prior to brain stimulation using the Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil results in more favorable treatment outcomes.

  • Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for treatment-resistant bipolar depression: A case report of acute and maintenance efficacy

    Bersani, F. S., Girardi, N., Sanna, L., Mazzarini, L., Santucci, C., Kotzalidis, G. D., & Girardi, P. (2013). Neurocase, 19(5), 451-457.

    This case report examines the effect of Brainsway® Deep TMS (Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation in a patient with bipolar depression. The patient was provided with 20 daily consecutive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation sessions, as well as one session every 2 weeks, over 3 months after the initial treatment. In this patient, symptoms were significantly alleviated and cognition was significantly enhanced following treatment. Moreover, these beneficial effects were evident for 6 months post treatment.

  • H-coil repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for treatment resistant major depressive disorder: An 18-week continuation safety and feasibility study

    Harel, E. V., Rabany, L., Deutsch, L., Bloch, Y., Zangen, A., & Levkovitz, Y. (2014). The World Journal of Biological Psychiatry, 15(4), 298-306.

    This study examined the long-term effect of Brainsway® Deep TMS (Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) on depressed patients. Patients underwent 4 weeks of intensive treatment and 18 weeks of maintenance treatments. The study demonstrated that brain stimulation using Brainsway's Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation significantly alleviates depressive symptoms, and that this beneficial effect can be maintained for a long period of time.

  • Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation add-on for treatment of negative symptoms and cognitive deficits of schizophrenia: A feasibility study

    Levkovitz, Y., Rabany, L., Harel, E. V., & Zangen, A. (2011). The International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, 14(07), 991-996.

    This study examined the effect of Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation on schizophrenic patients. In the study, patients were given 20 daily Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation sessions over the prefrontal cortex. The study demonstrated that brain stimulation using the H-coil significantly alleviates the negative symptoms of schizophrenia as well as enhancing cognition.

  • Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation for the treatment of auditory hallucinations: a preliminary open-label study

    Rosenberg, O., Roth, Y., Kotler, M., Zangen, A., & Dannon, P. (2011). Annals of general psychiatry, 10(1), 3.

    This study examined the effect of Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil stimulation on auditory hallucinations of schizophrenic patients. Low-frequency Deep TMS was used to stimulate the left temporoparietal cortex over 10-20 sessions. The study showed a substantial improvement in HRS score as well as a smaller improvement in SAPS. The study demonstrated that Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation using the H-coil significantly alleviates positive symptoms of schizophrenia.

  • Excitatory Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation With H-Coil Over the Right Homologous Broca’s Region Improves Naming in Chronic Post-stroke Aphasia

    Chieffo, R., Ferrari, F., Battista, P., Houdayer, E., Nuara, A., Alemanno, F., & Leocani, L. (2013). Neurorehabilitation and neural repair, 1545968313508471.

    This study was designed to examine the effect of different stimulation frequencies on the inability to use spoken language due to a stroke-induced brain lesion. Patients were tested for their ability to correctly name a picture following either high, low, or sham stimulation. This study demonstrated that acute, high-frequency, brain stimulation using Brainsway® Deep TMS, or Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, significantly improves stroke-induced inability to use spoken language.
