Structural plasticity of the hippocampus and amygdala induced by Electroconvulsive Therapy in major depression (The GEMRIC LosAngeles, CA, USA center)
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) elicits a rapid and robust clinical response in patients with refractory depression. Neuroimaging measurements of structural plasticity relating to and predictive of ECT response may point to the mechanisms underlying rapid antidepressant effects and establish biomarkers to inform other treatments. In this study, the researchers determined the effects of diagnosis and of ECT on global and local variations of hippocampal and amygdala structures in major depression and predictors of ECT-related clinical response.
