Would some kind person do a medline search on the merits of using
ECT for CVA or TBI associated with major depression.

Also how does the effectiveness vary if the equipment used is
using 60 hertz or 50 hertz power supply.  I supppect European
studies would show lower effectiveness for treating depression than
American studies.  What are the design characteristic in other words?

What happens to brain mass, dentrities, ect....?

Does ECT reduce the Alzheimer's connection associated with TBI?

Does ECT reduce damage to hyppocampus and frontal lobe associated
PTSD?

Any ECT research on effectives of different frequency for depression.

Does ECT reduce damage associated with TBI?

Thanks,
Ron Blue
