Marko Mihailovic, LCPC and Mehmet Dokucu, MD, PhD published a book chapter titled: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder: a personalized approach. In Garcia, D., Archer, T., and Kostrzewa R. (Eds.). Personality and Brain Disorders: Associations and Interventions. New York, NY: Springer.

The authors conducted a comprehensive review of a growing body of evidence suggesting that magnetic and electro stimulation of certain parts of the brain can alleviate depressive symptoms. We also reviewed current treatments for depression including Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Additionally, we researched concurrent biomarkers, which may help in determining which group of patients would have a positive response to TMS treatment for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). We evaluated current potential difficulties in diagnosing MDD accurately and reviewed a person centered approach as a model that may help with diagnosing MDD more accurately as well as improving existing TMS treatment.
