A comprehensive study of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) by British researchers has found that the treatment is effective in relieving depression, and in some cases may be more effective than medication
The study compared ECT treatment to a control group that received mock-ECT, as well as drug treatment.

Staying Awake in Lecture Halls or Meetings.
Whether you are in college or drudging through yet another corporate meeting, the results are always the same- sleepy, unresponsive, mind numbing boredom. Perhaps the Pocket Shocker can help:
Staying Awake Behind the Wheel.
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that fatigued drivers contribute to approximately 100,000 highway crashes, causing 71,000 injuries and 1,500 deaths each year.
Like drugs and alcohol, sleepiness contributes to collisions because it slows reaction time, decreases awareness, and impairs judgment.
To combat this fatal scenario many drivers who frequently make long trips are utilizing the Pocket Shocker as an immediate adrenalin rush. This Anti-sleep device works by sending an instantaneous jolt of electricity through your body. When you begin to feel drossy you simply pull over and depress the Shockers button, within an instant your heart is pumping and your nerves have been jolted awake. These devices have been engineered so that the shock is strong enough to wake you without causing any refutable damage to your nerves. And, unlike caffeine or power drinks the effect is immediate, without having to pull over every few miles for a restroom pit stop.
Staying Alert at Various Functions and Events.
