My brother was treated twice with ECT to deal with his depression. He was very bright and had a position as an actuary for an insurance company. It was the only occupation he ever pursed and he was in his early 50"s. After facing the possiblity of a third session, he elected to take his own life. Can I say that the prospect of further memory loss drove his to this behavior, of course not.
But it does highlight the how critical the research by Dr. Prudic and her team is in helping patients sustain memory function.
