Depression, Neuroinflammation and Transverse Myelitis

Studies of the effect of transverse myelitis (TM) on depression and the role of factors such as cytokines and other immune mediators have been pioneered by Dr Adam Kaplin and his group.

Dr Kaplin had the first NIH-funded project focused on transverse myelitis and has continued his effort on assessing the role of other factors that influence the development of depression in patients with TM.
