Depression is a psychiatric disorder of major public health importance. Depression is more common in women than men. Although most psychoactive drugs that are used therapeutically to treat mental disorders, unfortunately, are abused. Many abused drugs act by enhancing the effectiveness of dopamine in the pleasure pathways and gives intense sensation of pleasure. Optimal vestibular stimulation relieves most of the symptoms of depression through its connections with the structures of brain involved in emotions, behavior and cognition. Current evidence supports the use of vestibular stimulation as an intervention for depression. We recommend translational research in this area to explore the therapeutic validity of vestibular stimulation in the management of depression for the benefit of the population in general.
