AbstractThe burden of depression in older adults is enormous. Apart from being highly prevalent, late-life depression is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. While pharmacotherapy and psychological interventions remain as the mainstay of treatment, evidence supporting treatment using brain stimulating technologies is emerging. In the current article, the efficacy of four brain stimulating technologies including electroconvulsive therapy, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, and deep brain stimulation as treatment for older adults with depressive disorders is reviewed.
