The essence of the project is the replacement of drug stimulation of neurons by the action of a weak electromagnetic field. According to researcher Ronen Segal, this method is, firstly, more effective and, secondly, not addictive, unlike antidepressants.
Today, with the help of modern diagnostic equipment - tomographs, scanners and electroencephalographs, doctors determine the area of the brain, or rather, a group of neurons that need stimulation. In accordance with a new non-invasive technique, it became possible to control the force of the discharge to achieve a positive result.
In the near future, clinical trials will begin, in which volunteers will take part. According to the developers, if successful, the new revolutionary technique will help return to normal life millions of people suffering from various forms of depression. The next phase of research will explore the possibility of using this technique for the treatment of Parkinson's disease and epilepsy.
