AuthorsAdriano Mollica, Rachel Greben, Chika Oriuwa, Shan H Siddiqi, Matthew J Burke
SummaryThis research reviews the recent studies on neuromodulation for mTBI, focusing on prolonged post-concussive symptoms. The study concluded that Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is the most studied neuromodulation approach for mTBI with promising results for post-concussive depression and headache. Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) has also been evaluated but with mixed results. The review suggests that TMS could be a promising treatment strategy for post-concussive symptoms, but larger trials with longer follow-up periods are needed. Future studies should also explore new stimulation protocols, personalized approaches, and the role of placebo effects​1​.
