If you have been diagnosed with depression, are unmedicated or on stable antidepressant medication, are between 18 and older, and are able to receive a brain scan, you may be eligible to participate in a depression research study using neurostimulation.
This study uses transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a non-invasive neuromodulation therapy, which is sometimes shown to reduce depressive symptoms.
The study involves 13 visits to our laboratory over two to three weeks.
Study procedures include 20 minute tDCS sessions delivered over 12 days
The research also includes obtaining an MRI scan of your brain at three different time points, before and after receiving the series of tDCS sessions
Participants can earn up to $700 cash and a $25 e-gift card for completing all appointments
