In brief: Transcranial stim

Tarnscranial magnetic stimulation is only fda approved for depression.
Motor cortex stimulation has been used for pain but is not fda approved. Deep brain stimulation is approved for movement disorders such as parkinson's and essential tremor. I am unaware of any brain stimulation that will rehabilitate vision and hearing.
