January 12, 2023: 5th Carol W. Taylor Lecture in Psychiatry
Mapping and Treating Psychiatric Symptoms Using the Human Connectome
In this talk, "Mapping and Treating Psychiatric Symptoms Using the Human Connectome” Dr. Fox will show how causal sources of information, such as brain lesions and brain stimulation sites, can be used to identify human brain circuits responsible for psychiatric symptoms. I will also show how these brain circuits can be targeted with neuromodulation treatments, including invasive or noninvasive brain stimulation, for symptom relief.
This program is intended for: Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Fellows, Residents, Interns and Nurses
Upon completion of the activity, participants will be able to:
- Discuss how lesions that cause psychiatric symptoms map onto brain circuits
- Discuss neuromodulation treatments for psychiatric symptoms target brain circuits
- Describe the human connectome and how it can be used to map psychiatric symptoms onto brain circuits
