Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the medial forebrain bundle (MFB) can reverse depressive-like symptoms clinically and in experimental models of depression, but the mechanisms of action are unknown.
Non-convulsive neurostimulation is a rapidly-developing alternative to traditional treatment approaches in depression. Modalities such as repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), transcran...
Stimulation adjustment is required to optimise outcomes of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for treatment-resistant depression, but controlled data for ideal stimulation parameters are poor or insufficien...
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical neuromodulation procedure with a historically wide range of possible therapeutic indications, including movement disorders, neuropsychiatric conditions, and ...
This study will investigate the use of deep brain stimulation (DBS) to reduce symptom severity and enhance the quality of life for patients with treatment-refractory major depression.
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of deep brain stimulation in treating people with several and otherwise treatment-resistant depression.
Parkinson's disease is characterized by extra-pyramidal symptoms as well as digestive involvement with gastrointestinal motility (GI) impairment. Deep brain stimulation has been recently d...
We will evaluate the effect of deep brain stimulation on the depression and quality of life in Parkinson’s disease. We aim to compare depression pre-operatively and post-operatively in ...
The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the safety, feasibility and efficacy of chronic, high frequency stimulation of the subgenual cingulate white matter (Cg25WM) using the ANS ...
Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.
Therapy for MOVEMENT DISORDERS, especially PARKINSON DISEASE, that applies electricity via stereotactic implantation of ELECTRODES in specific areas of the BRAIN such as the THALAMUS. The electrodes are attached to a neurostimulator placed subcutaneously.
Drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients cannot be easily aroused but respond purposely following repeated painful stimulation. The ability to independently maintain ventilatory function may be impaired. (From: American Society of Anesthesiologists Practice Guidelines)
Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.
An adjunctive treatment for PARTIAL EPILEPSY and refractory DEPRESSION that delivers electrical impulses to the brain via the VAGUS NERVE. A battery implanted under the skin supplies the energy.
Psychiatry is the study of mental disorders and their diagnosis, management and prevention. Conditions include schizophrenia, severe depression and panic disorders among others. There are pharmaceutical treatments as well as other therapies to help...
