At the moment, researchers are figuring out exactly how it will be possible to extend the resulting stimulation effect. The scientists also intend to figure out how to use the discovery for the treatment of patients with depression without the introduction of electrodes into the brain.

The participants were divided into three main groups according to the level of compliance of their food diet, which helps to stop hypertension, Mediterranean diet, and West.
As shown by the results of observation, the risk of depression was lower in the group fed mainly with products belonging to the diet the first diet. While the highest rate of depression were those of participants whose power was more in tune with the Western diet high in red meat.
