We Stand on the Shoulders of Giants
The MeRT℠ approach is an innovative and targeted treatment based on powerful third party research that has been published in the most prestigious scientific journals. Below you will find the peer-reviewed and published research regarding EEGs, rTMS, and MeRT that build the foundation of our approach to treatment.
