About This Event
Dr. Fox will discuss the focus of his work and research in neurologic and psychiatric disease management. He will explain how mapping and modulating brain circuits can lead to better diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric conditions. This will include the discussion of various neuromodulation interventions for treating psychiatric and neurologic disease.
- Understand that both neurological and psychiatric symptoms come from dysfunction in brain networks.
- Identify which patients may benefit from a referral for a neuromodulation or brain stimulation treatment.
- Determine which conditions/symptoms are best treated/alleviated by neuromodulation.
