This study assesses whether certain factors identified with structural magnetic resonance imaging techniques are able to predict response to electroconvulsive therapy in patients with major depressive disorder.
This study describes the use of a multilevel data-integration approach to identify novel candidate genes for developmental brain disorders.
This network meta-analysis assesses the efficacy of all antipsychotics used in patients with treatment-resistant schizophrenia.
In a 2-center cross-sectional study, Redlich et al investigate and compare morphometric changes in unipolar depression (UD) and bipolar depression (BD), and replicate the findings at 2 independent neuroimaging sites.
