Illustration of electroshock treatment in the neural network. On the left, the network of a depressive patient and, on the right, the network after electroshock treatment. Electroshocks send an electric current which causes an epileptic fit, triggering the secretion of neurohormones, involved in mood disorders, improving neuronal activity (connections between neurons).
