South Rotary Club & Branch Out funding vital research for kids

A new transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (TMS) machine at the Alberta Children’s Hospital will support children with major depressive disorder, epilepsy and Tourette’s syndrome.

January 12, 2012

Thanks to the generous donation of Calgary South Rotary Club and in partnership with the Branch Out Neurological Foundation, Dr. Frank MacMaster and his team will be able to purchase a brand new transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (TMS) machine for the new Adolescent Mental Health Clinic at the Alberta Children’s Hospital.

His research and this non-invasive technology are showing promising results and hope for children with Major Depressive Disorder. TMS is also used to help treat other neurological disorders, including epilepsy and Tourette’s.
