Find out how analyzing expanded brain structures has led to revolutionary diagnoses and treatments.

  • Overview

    For patients diagnosed with depression for the first time the recommended course of treatment is the same; however, there’s a large patient population for whom these treatments won’t work. So it became increasingly important for Dr. Liston to map the brains of people suffering from major depression to see how it was impacting brain structures and symptoms. The research showed that certain networks expanded in the brains of patients who had depression and pushed into other networks. Learn more about identifying how these symptoms impact the patient’s brains, analyzing the best course for treatments, and how this research could be the key to effectively using transcranial magnetic stimulation to help patients with treatment-resistant depression. Join health and science journalist Catherine Price as she speaks with Dr. Conor Michael Liston, Psychiatrist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine, to discuss these approaches to help treatment-resistant depression.
