Scientists from Northamptonshire NHS Foundation Trust have created a brain-stimulating headset that could treat symptoms of depression.

According to the British National Health Service, after the successful experiment conducted by the authority, the use of electric headphones to treat depression was recommended as a treatment on a broader level.

Experiments have shown that an innovative electric headset for treating depression is an effective way to relieve symptoms.

To know the effectiveness of the headphones, doctors gave their patients suffering from depression the headphones to wear for 30 minutes a day for 6 weeks, as a non-surgical way to control symptoms.

The study found that the headset is an effective treatment for depression, using a brain stimulation technique known as transcranial direct current stimulation, as the device delivers a weak direct electrical current to the front part of the brain to stimulate the areas responsible for emotional expression.

The researchers found that more than 58% of the people participating in the experiment saw an improvement in symptoms within 6 weeks, and one in 3 of them entered a state of remission without any symptoms of depression.

It is worth noting that depression is a mood disorder that causes a constant feeling of sadness and loss of interest.

Depression is more than just a bout of bad mood. Depression may require long-term treatment, and most people with depression improve with medication, psychotherapy, or both.
