Al Interviews Dr. Nolan Williams on the topic of Stanford Accelerated Intelligent Neuromodulation Therapy (SAINT) – an Enhanced Version of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) The Depression Files

In this episode, Al interviews Dr. Nolan Williams, assistant professor within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the director of the Stanford Brain Stimulation Lab (recorded 11-20-20). Dr. Williams has a broad background in neuropsychiatry and is double board certified in both neurology and psychiatry. Dr. Williams describes what Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is and how it works. He goes on to describe the very recent research he is leading at Stanford University titled, "Stanford Accelerated Intelligent Neuromodulation Therapy (SAINT)". This enhanced version of TMS has been shown to be five times more potent than traditional TMS. 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. You can find out more about Dr. Nolan Williams here. You'll also find him tweeting @NolanRyWilliams. You can find out more about Stanford's Brain Stimulation Lab and SAINT here.

Here, you will find A New Dawn, another excellent mental health podcast that I am proud to say I was also a guest on. See the link below for my episode.

It is my belief that we can end the stigma of mental illness together. There are so many people suffering in silence. The people who dedicate hours of their time to helping others have a voice are amazing…..thank you all.
