Dr Sanil Rege, Consultant Psychiatrist and Founder of Psych Scene and Psych Scene Hub speaks to Dr. Martijn Arns, Chief Scientific Adviser, neuroCare Group; Founding Director & Senior Researcher at Research Institute Brainclinics.

Take-home Messages :

  1. Screening for sleep disorders is equally important in patients with depression, as sleep problems are often part of any psychiatric disorder in the DSM.

  2. Transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) applies a small current to the brain and may have its own niche area as a psychiatric treatment, as will rTMS.

  3. Developing symptom clusters and better research domain criteria will be critical if we are to develop personalised medicine for individuals.
