Recent Brain Stimulation Adaptations and Innovations for Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Disorders
Presented by Paul Croarkin, DO, Mayo Clinic
This presentation will focus on recent research with brain stimulation modalities for the development of biomarkers and therapeutics. Recent clinical trials have examined the utility of noninvasive brain stimulation modalities such as transcranial magnetic stimulation and retrospective work has focused on psychiatric outcomes of children treated with vagal nerve stimulation and deep brain stimulation for neurological disorders. Recent protocol development and ongoing studies that incorporate concurrent psychotherapeutic approaches will be discussed.
- Attendees will demonstrate the ability to define invasive and noninvasive neuromodulation.
- Attendees will review potential clinical applications of brain stimulation modalities, current evidence base, and regulatory status for clinical practice.
- Attendees will demonstrate the ability to discuss research methodology considerations with a focus on the parameter space of brain stimulation protocols.
About the Visiting Professor Lecture Series
The Child Mind Institute Visiting Professor Lecture Series invites leaders in the field of child and adolescent mental health to talk about the latest research and treatment protocols. All events are open to the public. This year, all lectures will be hosted virtually over Zoom. In partnership with Northwell Health, continuing medical education (CME) credits for psychiatrists and continuing education (CE) credits for psychologists are available to registered course participants.
