ABSTRACT: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Has Been Suggested
As A Possible Therapeutic Tool In Depression. In
Behavioral Models Of Depression, Magnetic Stimulation
Induced Similar Effects To Those Of Electroconvulsive
Shock. This Study Demonstrates The Effect Of A Single
Session Of Rapid TMS On Tissue Monoamines In Rat Brain.
Alterations In Monoamines Were Selective And Specific In
Relation To Brain Areas And Type Of Monoamine. The
Results Imply On A Biochemical Basis To The Suggested
ECT-like Treatment Potential Of TMS.
