Depression DBS Brain Illustration

Primary tabs

Copper-colored illustration of a hair-like mass shaped like a brain. The strands are the white matter structure of a patient brain.  It's encircled by ones & zeros that connect to a bright spot in the frontal lobe with brightly lit pathways extending from that spot — the target pathways for a deep-brain stimulation therapy to treat severe depression.

An illustration created from scans of the white matter brain structure of a patient in the study by Georgia Tech, Mount Sinai, and Emory University researchers. The highlighted paths are the regions targeted in deep-brain stimulation therapy for treatment-resistant depression. Recordings of brain activity during treatment paired with new explainable AI tools can provide objective data about recovery to physicians. (Illustration: Mike Halerz, TeraPixel)
