About The Meeting:
"Can Magnetic Brain Stimulation Help Adults with ADD/ADHD?"
Bursts of magnetic energy can shift the workings of brain cells ... and brain circuits. In turn, TMS -- Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, which is non-invasive -- can alter mood, anxiety level, pain perception, motor coordination, drive, or mental concentration.
TMS has been approved for use in treatment-resistant depression. Could it help, too, with ADD/ADHD? For more, hear psychiatrist Edward Fruitman, who uses TMS to treat both.
For 20 years, the Manhattan Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Support Group has offered walk-in, peer-run support sessions for adults with ADD and ADHD. In addition, it sponsors workshops led by experts in ADD/ADHD and other aspects of mental health. Our website: maaddsg.org.
