The FDA has approved a brain modulation device developed in Israel to treat PTSD. The device has been tested on Israeli soldiers and works by regulating activity in the part of the brain that controls emotion. This is not the first time an Israeli-developed brain stimulation device has been used to treat PTSD, as the US Navy previously purchased a similar device in 2015. The device has also been approved for marketing in the US to treat nightmare disorder and PTSD-related nightmares.
