This website is for certain individuals with depression who may be interested in participating in a research study. You may be able to participate if antidepressants have not fully relieved your depression symptoms or if you are unable to tolerate the side effects of an antidepressant medication. The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational, non-medication treatment for depression called transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS. A research study such as this one is designed to answer important questions about the effectiveness and safety of investigational treatments by testing them on actual people. Before investigational treatments can be approved for public use, they must be tested in research studies.

This research study is for adults with depression who are 18 to 70 years of age.
