#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Brain Stimulation


Dr. Irving Michael Reti and his team treat patients with electroconvulsive therapy — also known as ECT — as well as transcranial magnetic stimulation. Long known for its effectiveness, especially in the treatment of medication-resistant depression, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is one of the most applied and tested treatment methods for many psychiatric illnesses. The field of brain stimulation continues to evolve as technology improves and as we learn more about brain function and how these treatment methods affect it.

Seeking Knowledge to Cure and Prevent

Our clinical research programs range from efficacy and treatment-response studies to clinical trials and epidemiology. Our basic research encompasses bioinformatics, genetics, neuroscience, neuroimaging, and molecular biology - all in an effort to unlock the causal pathways to the major psychiatric conditions and to use this knowledge to develop practical means to improve diagnosis and treatment.

Meet Our Experts

Meet Dr. Osborne

Throughout her residency, Lauren Osborne noticed how little training some of her colleagues were getting in reproductive psychiatry—the assessment and treatment of psychiatric symptoms arising in women during hormonal transitions such as pregnancy or perimenopause. It hit home while Osborne pursued a research fellowship in women’s mental health.
