The Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre is investigating a novel treatment for people with Alzheimer's disease. We are examining whether transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can improve the cognitive symptoms of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease such as thinking and memory difficulties. TMS is a form of non-invasive brain stimulation which uses a magnetic pulse to stimulate brain cells. It has been used for over 20 years in the treatment of depression, and we are now testing its use in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
We are looking for men and women, aged 50 to 95 years, with a diagnosis of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease, who are interested in participating in research.
