Combined rTMS-psychotherapy effective treatment for depression
16-11-2017
Nijmegen (The Netherlands), November, 16th 2017 – Magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS) combined with concurrent psychotherapy seems more effective, then either alone, as was just published in the international journal ‘Brain Stimulation’ based on a study in 196 patients. After an average of 21 sessions, 66% of patients with treatment resistant depression responded well to treatment, with a lasting effect after 6 months in 65% of this group.


Brainclinics active at Brain Stimulation conference in Barcelona
03-03-2017
Researchers from research institute Brainclinics will present new data at the Brain Stimulation conference in Barcelona. Tabitha Iseger will present data that validate the proof-of-concept behind the new Neuro-Cardiac-Guided TMS (NCG-TMS) approach. This method could potentially become a new way to more reliably identify the right cortical locations for rTMS stimulation in the treatment of depression. Lana Donse will present some first clinical results on rTMS treatment in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), association with sleep problems and predictors for treatment response to rTMS.


Brainclinics presents new scientific results at IPEG conference
01-11-2016
At October 26-30, researchers from Research Institute Brainclinics have presented the latest scientific results of ongoing research at the International Conference of “the International Pharmaco-EEG Society (IPEG)", which took place in Nijmegen, The Nethrlands this time.


Brain activity predicts personalized antidepressant treatment
16-07-2015
Today results from the large multicenter randomized iSPOT-D study were published in Clinical Neurophysiology demonstrating that brain activity can assist in predicting antidepressant treatment outcome to commonly used antidepressant drugs. In addition, this study clearly demonstrated qualitative differences in brain activity between males and females with depression, with implications for predicting antidepressant treatment outcome.


Association between ADHD and intensity of sunlight
21-10-2013
A study published today in Biological Psychiatry sheds new light on the increasing rates (prevalence) of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, known as ADHD. Children with ADHD have problems with inattention, distractibility, disorganization, impulsiveness, and overactivity. This study found that “sunny” regions with high solar intensity, such as the US states of California, Arizona, and Colorado, and countries like Spain and Mexico have lower prevalence of ADHD.

Sleep-improvement working mechanism neurofeedback ADHD
12-11-2012
Difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep are common symptoms in patients with ADHD, and these sleep complaints are often associated with attention and impulsivity problems, researchers from Utrecht University and research institute Brainclinics conclude in the scientific journal Neuroscience and Biobehavioural Reviews...


Doubling of Neurofeedback efficacy in ADHD treatment
27-03-2012
Nijmegen, March 27, 2012 – A personalized treatment approach, tailoring Neurofeedback treatment to the individual ADHD patient almost doubled the effectiveness for attentional and hyperactivity/impulsivity problems. These results have just been published in the scientific journal ‘Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback’.


Outcome to treatment for depression predicted
27-02-2012
Nijmegen, February 27, 2012 - Favorable treatment outcome in 78% of depressed patients after on average 21 sessions. These results were recently published based on the combination of magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS) and psycho-therapy in the treatment of depression. It was further demonstrated that by means of brain activity - or EEG research- it could be predicted which patients would respond and which patients would not respond to this treatment combination.


EEG voorspelt juiste behandeling bij ADHD en depressie
18-12-2011
Antidepressiva voor mensen met een depressie en ritalin voor ADHD-patiënten. Het zijn de geijkte medicinale behandelingen bij dergelijke aandoeningen. Maar de medicijnen blijken lang niet altijd even effectief voor alle patiënten. Promovendus Martijn Arns deed onderzoek...


rTMS course for professionals
04-04-2011
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique. An electric current in a stimulation coil produces a magnetic field that induces a flow of electric current in the human brain. In combination with psychotherapy, rTMS has very good results in the treatment of depression.

Gesprekstherapie en magnetische hersenstimulatie
28-08-2009
Nijmegen, 28 augustus 2009 – De combinatie van gesprekstherapie en magnetische hersenstimulatie (rTMS) bij de behandeling van depressie, resulteert in een effectiviteit van 75% na gemiddeld 20 sessies. Dit zijn de resultaten van een wetenschappelijke studie die deze maand gepubliceerd wordt. De toevoeging van rTMS in gesprekstherapie heeft hetzelfde doel als antidepressiva...


Neurofeedback Evidence-Based treatment for ADHD
16-07-2009
Nijmegen, July 16th 2009 – Neurofeedback – also called EEG Biofeedback – is a method used to train brain activity in order to normalize Brain function and treat psychiatric disorders. This treatment method has gained interest over the last 10 years, however the question whether this treatment should be regarded as an Evidence-Based treatment was unanswered until now....


International Biomarker-Depression study: iSPOT-D
26-03-2009
Nijmegen, 26 maart 2009 – Uit onderzoek komt naar voren dat Antidepressiva slechts bij 40-60% van de patiënten aanslaan, terwijl pijnstillers bij bijna iedereen werken. Hoe kan dit? En vooral, hoe kan dit verbeterd worden? Om deze vragen te beantwoorden is Brainclinics Diagnostics in een internationaal samenwerkingsverband gestart met het grootste Biomarker-onderzoek bij Depressie ooit uitgevoerd....
