Brain stimulation therapies play a role in treating certain mental disorders. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) are the best-studied brain stimulation therapies. These treatment methods can be administered alone or in addition to medication and psychotherapy. Choosing the right treatment approach under a doctors care should be based on the medical indication and a person's individual needs.
