The Psychiatry department at Washington University School of Medicine has a renowned history of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) research.  We were one of multiple national sites involved in the clinical trial that led to the FDA approval of TMS for the treatment of depression (O’Reardon JP et al. Biol Psychiatry 2007).

 At Washington University, we have also investigated the use of TMS to treat postpartum depression and to treat tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
