Accerated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Treatment Resistant Major Depression

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is effective at inducing antidepressant responses in patients with treatment-resistant depression.  Initial studies suggest that rTMS could be effective at inducing antidepressant responses transdiagnostically but responses typically take two to four weeks. A new type of rTMS, intermittent theta-burst stimulation (iTBS), has been shown to be five times more potent than traditional rTMS. More potent stimulation means patients can be stimulated for less time, meaning more sessions could be administered per day, potentially resulting in much faster antidepressant responses.

Eligibility Requirements

* Ages 22-65

* Primary Diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder

* tried at least 1 anti-depressant medication

* No history of Seizures or diagnosis of Epilepsy

Early Detection of COVID-19 Infection Symptoms Using Wearable Devices - Empatica devices

Through this study, we are aiming to understand if the use of wearable devices, such as fitness trackers like the Empatica watch, can be used to early detect symptoms of infection disease, including the new COVID-19 respiratory infection. For this study, we will specifically target people at high risk of COVID-19 exposure. In light of the large invisible caseload and high transmission rates of COVID-19, as well as the lack of sufficient, widely available testing kits, alternative methods for early disease detection could provide a significant public health benefit during the outbreak. Our previous work has indicated that heart rate data measured using smartwatches can be useful for early detection of infectious disease. We have developed an algorithm, Change-of-Heart, that identified extremely outlying heart rate measurements and we showed that these outliers were often associated with infection. Participants will enroll for this 30-day-study, during which they must wear the Empatica watch and collect daily saliva samples using the provided at-home COVID-19 testing kits.

Please email covid19_empatica@stanford.edu to enroll.
