Guiding the Ethical Use and Development of Psychiatric Electroceutical Interventions

A little bit over a year ago, my colleagues and I got very exciting news. The grant proposal we had submitted for the National Institutes of Health BRAIN Neuroethics funding had been accepted. This was the first major grant proposal I received as a Principal Investigator, and I am truly honored and excited to be given the opportunity to be doing the work that we have been carrying out for the past year.

As part of our work, we are examining the ethical concerns, beliefs, and attitudes of psychiatrists, patients, and healthy members of the public (including caregivers) regarding the development and use of four (PEIs): ECT, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), DBS, and adaptive implants for major depressive disorder. All of our research instruments ask specifically about the use of a given PEI for the treatment of depression.
