Obsessions as brain connectivity disorders
📅 Date: June 9, 2023
The lecture given by Dr. Stefano Pallanti ― titled "From Myths to Neuroscience: Obsessions as Brain Connectivity Disorders, Therapeutic Targets and Treatment with rTMS" ― was an important contribution to the larger masterclass on the topic of "Human Connectome, RDoC and TMS" held at the Universidad de La Laguna (Tenerife).
During the lecture, Dr. Pallanti shed light on the fascinating topic regarding Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum disorders, exploring the concept of obsessions as disorders of brain connectivity and delving into the potential therapeutic targets guided by the latest neuroscientific literature and the possibility of using repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) as an effective method of treating these disorders.
The lecture was part of a larger masterclass that explored topics related to the human connectome, the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) initiative, and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a targeted method of treating several disorders. Digging deeper into the intricate networks of the human brain, the masterclass provided valuable insights into the latest advances in neuroscientific research and therapeutic applications for neuropsychiatric disorders.
Dr. Stefano Pallanti's contribution to the event highlighted his constant dedication to advancing the field of Neuroscientific Psychiatry and sharing his valuable knowledge as a Clinician and Researcher. His extensive clinical expertise and groundbreaking research projects continue paving the way for revolutionary advances in the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders.
Dr. Pallanti is one of the leading experts on OCD in the world.
OCD and Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders
Dr. Pallanti is one of the leading experts on Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in the world.
The Istituto di Neuroscienze integrates a variety of treatment methods that have proven successful in treating Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders: Neuromodulation Therapies, Pharmacological Therapies, Psychotherapy and Natural Therapies.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
The different types of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) represent non-invasive and non-pharmacological therapies that use magnetic field to stimulate or inhibit specific brain areas, proving to be highly effective for the treatment of many disorders, including Resistant Depression and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
