#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.
The depth of our clinical expertise and the breadth of our research programs allow us to train the next generation of psychiatrists and scientists to be clinical and research leaders. Our educational programs include medical student education, a general psychiatry residency, a child and adolescent psychiatry residency, and post-doctoral fellowship and research training opportunities.Training Programs
