Overview Of Lecture:

In mental health care, not every attempt meets with success.
 
After which, a typical response is to tweak an existing treatment. A rare response is to look to the edge of current medical technology.
 
Somewhere in between is the use of the anesthetic ketamine to bring rapid relief to severe depression. And the use of a new version of non-invasive magnetic stimulation -- known as deep TMS -- to do the same. Both -- through research or off-label prescribing -- have also been used in two other conditions: obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
 
Other approaches have been tried as well. Meanwhile, there's the question: what can be done for those with treatment-resistant cases of ADHD? A field perpetually out of the innovation loop?
 
Getting us started on these issues will be Manhattan psychiatrist Kyle Lapidus. Dr. Lapidus is also an investigator at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research run by Northwell Health on Long Island.
