Abstract: Brain stimulation the field of focally applying electricity to the brain is a rapidly growing and promising world of techniques that are effective in treating conditions ranging from Parkinson s disease to depression. Comprehensively surveying the state of current practice, Brain Stimulation Therapies for Clinicians provides a clear and straightforward analysis of its many therapeutic applications and the technologies and techniques involved in each. Beginning with a quick, accessible overview of electricity and its effect on the brain, Brain Stimulation Therapies for Clinicians covers the range of electrical stimulation therapies, including electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), deep brain stimulation (DBS), and a host of other clinical applications. Each chapter explores a particular therapy, including its history, the techniques involved, clinical indications, side effects, and a critical review of the literature surrounding its efficacy. Clear illustrations and a helpful glossary are provided to assist and orient the clinician. Written by a pioneer in the field and a cutting-edge clinical practitioner, Brain Stimulation Therapies for Clinicians is an essential reference for any clinician wanting to understand electrical stimulation therapies.
