Clinical Programs

The clinical programs prioritize the integration of clinical research with clinical care and seek to deliver cutting edge, personalized therapies to patients with mood disorders drawing on emerging developments from the Center-supported research efforts. 

Treatment-Resistant Mood Disorders Clinic


The treatment-resistant mood disorders clinic is led by Dr. Krystal and Dr. Owen Wolkowitz and offers patients who have failed multiple treatments or who represent diagnostic challenges a comprehensive evaluation by a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians and provides them with a detailed diagnostic assessment and specific set of treatment recommendations.   Treatment options include referral to ongoing clinical research studies such as the intracranial closed-loop DBS project.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Clinic


The TMS program co-led by Drs. Krystal and Scangos provides patients with mood disorders evaluations for potential TMS treatment as well as courses of TMS therapy in cases where it is indicated.   Clinical research carried out in conjunction with the TMS program focuses on attempting to build on findings emerging from the intracranial closed-loop DBS project.  Currently this consists of attempting to replicate with non-invasive means (fMRI), personalized biomarkers of major depression identified via invasive methods employing intracranial EEG (iEEG) recordings.
