What is NeuroCentrix?
NeuroCentrix is a private neuroscience group dedicated to evidence-based assessment, treatment and research of memory and mood disorders.
Our memory and mood clinics provide evidence-based assessment and treatment plans for Alzheimer’s Disease and depression.
Our TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) therapy offers a non-invasive treatment for major depressive disorders.
We conduct Phase II to Phase IV pharmaceutical sponsored trials, investigator-initiated research and collaborative group studies in neurological disorders.
Potential New Treatments For Alzheimer's Disease and Depression

For people with depression
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a recognised treatment for depression and other neurological conditions.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of TMS in the treatment of depression, particularly in patients who have not responded well to anti-depressant medication.
TMS is a non-invasive treatment delivered by an external magnetic coil placed above the head. The coil sends repetitive electromagnetic pulses to stimulate neuron activity in specific surface areas of the brain that regulate mood.
TMS is an approved treatment for depression in Australia, Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
