Techniques and therapies for application in the field of psychiatry and mental health.
Mental health is the medical field that collects the most scientific evidence regarding treatment with non-invasive brain neuromodulation techniques (NIBS), mainly in cases of major depression.
The objective of these techniques is the modulation of brain activity, through the application of a controlled electrical current, and to normalize possible alterations. Published studies show that non-invasive brain neuromodulation yields very good therapeutic results both in patients with depression resistant to pharmacological treatment and in patients with depression who respond to said treatment. These techniques are perfectly compatible with other treatments. Moreover, it is known that combining them with treatments through cognitive-behavioral therapy and antidepressant drugs doubles the chances of response and remission of depression.
