Subgenual cingulate cortical activity predicts the efficacy of electroconvulsive therapy (The GEMRIC Glen Oaks, NY, USA center)
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is the most effective treatment for depression, yet its mechanism of action is unknown. The goal of this study was to investigate the neurobiological underpinnings of ECT response using longitudinally collected resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) in 16 patients with treatment-resistant depression and 10 healthy controls.
