Initiatives -
Major depression, currently the world's primary cause of disability, leads to profound personal suffering and increased risk of suicide. Unfortunately, the success of antidepressant treatment varies amongst individuals and can take weeks to months in those who respond. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), generally prescribed for the most severely depressed and when standard treatments fail, produces a more rapid response and remains the most effective intervention for severe depression. Longitudinal neuroimaging studies, i.e. with imaging of patients before- and after ECT, have already shown that ECT has effect on specific brain regions and circuits.
