Next Gen Brain Technologies: How targeted neuromodulation is and is not impacting psychiatric practice

Sarah H. Lisanby, MD
J. P. Gibbons Professor and Chair Duke University, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

Dr. Lisanby`s work focuses on the application of focal brain stimulation for the study and treatment of psychiatric disorders. This includes image-guided transcranial magnetic stimulation to probe normal brain function, and in the treatment of depression and anxiety. It also includes the induction of focal seizures via magnetic seizure therapy as a safer alternative to conventional electroconvulsive therapy in the treatment of severe depression. Focal brain stimulation using electrical and magnetic fields provides a means of testing hypotheses regarding brain/behavior relationships derived from passive imaging paradigms. It also provides a clinical translation of insights gleaned from imaging and physiological studies into circuit-based treatments.
