Brain region targeting could help visual hallucinations

How Might brain region targeting help to treat visual hallucinations in psychiatric patients?

A very interesting article in Mental Health Today:

A recent literature review in the Harvard Review of Psychiatry suggests that transcranial electric stimulation (tES), which is a non-invasive form of brain stimulation, could possibly be more effective than once thought in treating visual hallucinations.

This is a problem that isn’t often discussed – visual as opposed to auditory (hearing voices) symptoms.  I know from talking to people who have visual images just how distressing it can be.  It is good to know there is some hope for the treatment of this.
