Virtual Forum: Neuromodulation Techniques: State Of The Science
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Clinicians managing patients with behavioral health issues are presented with various diagnostic and treatment challenges, spanning the areas of neurobiology, adherence, safety, and medication tolerability. Currently available pharmacotherapeutic, psychotherapeutic, and combination therapies often provide inadequate or only partial responses, leaving patients with a host of residual symptoms. Neuromodulation techniques, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), deep brain stimulation (DBS) and others, have been gaining favor among experts as alternative options for addressing those experiencing inadequate response with more traditional treatment regimens.
In this Virtual Forum, join Philip G. Janicak, MD, Adjunct Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine and a Consultant at the Neuromodulation Center at Northwestern University; and Michael Thase, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Treatment and Research Program at University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and a member of the medical staff of the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA, will discuss the state of the science in neuromodulation techniques. Speakers will discuss their perspectives and the supporting evidence for various forms of neuromodulation in the treatment of mental health disorders, with a focus on depression.
Speakers are paid consultants for Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc.
