Afsnit 5: Smil og vær glad
The project mentioned by Mette Marie is currently on stand-by. The project aims to evaluate a new app’s potential as a new treatment for cognitive rehabilitation for patients in remission from depression. The app, however, is available in both Danish and English in App Store.
The Paths of Science (Videnskabens veje)
The Capital Region of Psychiatry has made a podcast series The Paths of Science (Videnskabens veje), and one them is about the treatment with ECT, where our PhD student Krzysztof Gbyl talks about his research project. It is about how the brain behaves when it is subjected to ECT treatment, what parts of the brain are affected and how it can be related to the antidepressant effect. The hope is that over time you can predict which patients benefit from the treatment and who is most at risk for side effects.
