A team of University of South Florida psychiatrists and biomedical engineers applied an emerging functional neuroimaging technology, known as diffuse optical tomography (DOT), to better understand how rTMS works so they can begin to improve the technique's effectiveness in treating depression.
Middle-age and older people living in more disadvantaged neighborhoods -- areas with higher poverty levels and fewer educational and employment opportunities--had more brain shrinkage on brain scans and showed faster decline on cognitive tests than people living in neighborhoods with fewer disadvantages, according to a new study
