ECT is a form of brain stimulation where a brief electric current is administered to the brain to induce a controlled seizure while the patient is under general anesthesia.
Because of the side effects, including memory loss and disorientation, ECT is most commonly used in severe cases of depression or in treatment-resistant depression. It can also be used to treat bipolar disorder and symptoms of schizophrenia. Though researchers don’t know exactly how ECT works, the treatment is thought to spark electrical activity among brain cells and change the chemical balance in areas of the brain which play an important part in mood regulation. ECT treatment usually consists of 6-12 ECT sessions.

TMS is a form of brain stimulation where a magnetic field (about the same strength as in an MRI scan) is used to change the activity of brain cells in specific brain areas. TMS can be used against treatment-resistant depression and is approved by the FDA. When treating depression with TMS, a coil is placed on the forehead to target the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) of the brain. A TMS procedure typically lasts for 30-60 minutes and a full treatment includes 20-30 pr
ocedures. No anesthesia or muscle relaxants are needed and the patient is fully awake through the procedures.
