Author Quote

I think that one of the primary interests with most of the research we do, and especially the application of it, is that we can answer the ‘So What’ question. Often you read about research and think, ‘Wow, that’s interesting,’ but when you start thinking it through you think, ‘Well, so what.’ So what is the implication for an individual patient, and how does a patient benefit from this?

Take-home Messages:

  • Applied brain research allows the personalisation of treatment for individuals
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation is being developed as a treatment for depression and OCD
