Abstract

In the 1940s, regressive and intensive methods were developed to increase the therapeutic effects of electroconvulsive therapy. The diagnostic indications, methods of application, effectiveness, complications, and mortality of these techniques are briefly discussed here. An attempt is also made to evaluate the risks and benefits of these methods from a historical perspective.
