New Study Suggests Electrode Brain Stimulation Could Treat Binge Eating Disorder

A recent study has found that binge eating disorder (BED) may be treatable with electrode brain stimulation. The study showed that participants in this therapy saw their number of binge eating episodes decrease from an average of about 20 per month to six per month over a six-week period.

Participants also reported an average weight loss of 4 kilograms since starting treatment, suggesting that electrode brain stimulation could also be helpful in treating binge eating and weight loss.

The brain stimulation technique used in this study is called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). It involves applying a low electrical current targeted to specific areas of the scalp, typically above the motor region or prefrontal cortex.

These preliminary findings suggest that tDCS could be a safe and effective therapy for BED. However, more research is needed to confirm these findings and determine the long-term efficacy of this treatment.
