Related Research

Current projects emphasize development of novel imaging biomarkers predictive of treatment response and optimal treatment selection for individual depressed patients at all stages of illness. Predictive biomarker studies are complemented by clinical testing, surgical refinement and multimodal mechanism studies of deep brain stimulation for treatment resistant patients.
