Completed Studies

No mood illness is the same. Our brain circuit targeted approach leverages cutting edge neuroscience for personalized treatment.

Below are some of our recent projects:

Effect of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on Anxiety (K01)

Examined how transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can affect fear and anxiety through memory and attention tasks.

Mini Theta Burst TMS to Promote Brain Plasticity Indexed by fMRI (NARSAD)

Utilized neuroimaging methods to map and modulate the brain and symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Dimensional Connectomics of Anxious Misery (U01)

Contributed participant brain images and behavioral data to a public database sponsored by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and is associated with the Human Connectome Project.

RF1 | Network Control TMS fMRI

Used diffusion imaging (fMRI) to create individualized TMS targets and explore impacts on behavior.

Intensive TMS for Rapid Relief of Bipolar Depression Symptoms

Investigated the use of intensive TMS as a treatment for bipolar depression.

Intensive TMS for Major Depression

Investigated the use of intensive TMS for the treatment of major depression.

TPJ TMS | Reducing Delay Discounting and Selfishness with Excitatory Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation of the Temporoparietal Junction

Explored Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) through excitatory TMS and the temporal-parietal junction (TPJ).

CCBT | Novel Neural Circuit Biomarkers of Depression Response to Computer-augmented CBT

Examined the neurobiological impact of computer-augmented cognitive behavioral therapy (CCBT).

R01 | Probing and Modulating Neural Circuitry Relevant to Affective Illness

Used non-invasive brain stimulation (transcranial magnetic stimulation) to temporarily influence the brain while we record effects with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

Stress and Inflammation in the Pathophysiology of Depression

Investigated whether increased inflammation affects depression treatment response.

Anatomically Guided Intermittent Theta Burst Stimulation (Clinical)

Gathered information on anatomically guided iTBS targeting the left DLPFC to optimize treatment outcomes.

Accelerated TMS to a Novel Brain Target in MDD and PTSD (Cure)

Evaluated novel TMS methods to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depressive symptoms by comparing the effects of TMS to two different brain regions.

Task Augmentation of TMS

Investigated effects of activating the DLPFC promotion system on responses to TMS treatment.
