The DART Study


We are interested in learning more about how Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and ketamine affect depressive symptoms. We are most interested in learning how anhedonia (lacking pleasure in life) is changed by these treatments. Patients who have been diagnosed with treatment-resistant depression (TRD) and who are also scheduled to receive ketamine or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) are being recruited for this study. We are looking to enroll a second group of participants into a healthy control group who have not been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder. This group will have a single 60 minute visit in which computer tasks and surveys will be completed while wearing an electroencephalogram (EEG) head cap to record brain activity.
