Using brain stimulation to treat post-stroke depression (research)

University of South Australia School of Health Sciences, City East Campus, North Terrace, Adelaide, SA, 5001

This study aims to investigate non-invasive brain stimulation approaches to treat people who are experiencing post-stroke depression.

Following initial assessment involving series of questionnaires, eligible participants will be randomly allocated to one of two groups:

  1. real brain stimulation
  2. sham brain stimulation.

All recruited participants will attend 10 treatment sessions which will involve brain stimulation and some measure to test the effectiveness of this treatment. These sessions will be done consecutively (Monday to Friday) at a similar time of each day. Upon completing the 10 treatment sessions, participants will be required to attend at 1-month follow up for clinical assessments.

Funding is available to reimburse participants for travel costs.
