If so, you may be eligible to participate in a research study using Transcranial Light Therapy (TLT) to treat depression that is being conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital. TLT involves a non-invasive and invisible beam of near infrared light that increases energy metabolism to the brain, and some of this increased brain activity may help people with depression. This treatment is not the same as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).

All TLT sessions will take place at the Depression Clinical and Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. Subjects will be assigned by chance to receive active TLT or sham TLT treatment (the TLT device will not produce near infrared waves during sham TLT visits). We can validate your parking ticket if you park in a hospital garage, and compensation up to $300 is available if you complete all parts of the study.

If you are between 18 and 70 years old and would like more information, please respond to the posting.
