In an engrossing upcoming segment of "Front Page", with host James Earl Jones (Star Wars), a team of experts in the field of psychology will explain TMS treatments for depression and how it compares to other treatments that are more widespread. This episode of the series will educate people on this topic, which is not very well known.

TMS, which stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation, is a noninvasive procedure that is used to improve symptoms of depression. It utilizes magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells. During the procedure, an electromagnetic coil is placed near the patient's forehead, against the scalp. It emits a magnetic pulse, which stimulates nerve cells that are located in the region of the brain that are involved in mood regulation and depression. It is also possible that this treatment activates brain regions that are less active than normal in depressed individuals. Though the mechanism of how TMS treatments work is not completely understood, the treatment does seem to have a positive effect in terms of reducing depression symptoms.

Front Page is not released or produced by either APT or PBS. It has been created for the sole purpose of being aired on Public Television, and this episode will be distributed to television stations all over the United States. This episode is filmed in high definition, and is put through a screening process with the utmost quality assurance standards. An award-winning set of producers, videographers, and writers, in addition to James Earl Jones, participated in the making of the episode.
