|When:||Tuesday, March 17, 2015 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM|
The UBC National Core for Neuroethics is pleased to announce…
Dr. Helen Mayberg, Professor of Psychiatry, Neurology and Radiology and the Dorothy Fuqua Chair in Psychiatry Imaging and Therapeutics from Emory University School of Medicine, is visiting on March 17-18, 2015 as this year’s Dana BAW Distinguished Neuroethics Lecture speaker:
Rethinking Depression and its Treatment: Perspectives from Studies of Deep Brain Stimulation
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
In addition to ongoing studies to develop imaging biomarkers that can optimize treatment selection in individual depressed patients at all stages of illness, the lab is focused on the development of combined structural and electrical connectivity models to optimize surgical targeting, refine stimulation parameters and characterize mechanisms of both immediate and sustained antidepressant effects of high frequency DBS. Combined with real-time behavioral and physiological metrics, these studies offer a unique perspective on critical pathways and mechanisms mediating antidepressant effects of DBS, and on the pathophysiology of treatment resistant depression more generally.
Dr. Mayberg is a Board Certified Neurologist, trained at Columbia’s Neurological Institute in New York, with fellowship training in nuclear medicine at Johns Hopkins. She is a member of the Institute of Medicine and is an active participant in a wide variety of advisory and scientific activities across multiple fields in neuroscience.
