“Still Depressed” or “Recovering”? Researchers Find Biomarker Signaling Recovery in Treatments for Severe Depression Using Deep Brain Stimulation
Researchers say they have identified an objective biomarker of recovery in major depression that in a small cohort of treatment-resistant patients was able (on an ongoing basis) to capture whether… Read More
Highly Individualized Deep-Brain Stimulation Helps a Patient With Severe Treatment-Resistant Depression
Over the past three years, researchers at The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)—three of them BBRF grantees and one a member of BBRF’s Scientific Council—have published three papers that… Read More
Team Uses Non-Invasive TMS Brain Stimulation to Activate Deep-Brain Region Important in Depression
A research team led by a three-time recipient of BBRF grants has successfully tested a method of using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a non-invasive method of brain stimulation, to activate… Read More
A 'Common Causal Circuit' in Depression with Possible Therapeutic Implications
If you want to cure an illness, you try to understand its underlying cause or causes, as a precondition for modifying, reducing, or eliminating them. That, in highly simplified terms, is one of the… Read More
Positive Preliminary Results in Highly Personalized Deep-Brain Stimulation Therapy for Treatment-Resistant Depression
A research team led in part by two BBRF grantees has reported initial success in using a novel, highly personalized, and technologically advanced treatment approach to relieve symptoms in a single… Read More
