rTMS Augmentation of Escitalopram in Depression Executive Dysfunction Syndrome

Clinical Trial Details

This study is being done because there is evidence that some people with depression can improve following stimulation to the brain using a treatment called Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or rTMS. The purpose of this study is to see whether rTMS may improve the ability of an antidepressant medication, escitalopram, to treat late-life depression in individuals with certain types of cognitive problems. Currently, it is unknown whether rTMS adds to the benefit of escitalopram for individuals with this type of depression.
