This session will focus on the potential role of neuromodulation to treat addiction and affective disorders. Speakers will present current knowledge of the neural anatomy relevant to these disorders and neuromodulation. Both non-invasive and invasive neuromodulation approaches will be presented along with methods to develop advanced neuromodulation strategies that exploit knowledge of the underlying neural circuity.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Examine the value of neuromodulation as an alternative to manage affective disorders.
- Evaluate the anatomical targets for neuromodulation.
- Describe the effects of electrical fields on neuronal tissues.
- Recognize the available neuromodulation modalities for affective disorders.
