Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Intervention

The Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Intervention is part of the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program at CAMH. The centre encompasses Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Electroconvulsive Therapy, and Magnetic Seizure Therapy.

The TMS program is primarily a research laboratory. All referrals are screened to determine eligibility for any of the studies operating at that time.  Assessments include structured diagnostic interviews and psychiatric consultation where appropriate in addition to a number of cognitive components.​
