Brain scans may help clinicians choose between talk therapy and medication treatment for depression

Guess who's got a new published spin on Depression?   

Dr. Mayberg and Emory University.

And the article suggests THERE ARE WAYS TO PREDICT WHICH DEPRESSION TREATMENT WILL WORK FOR YOUR TYPE OF DEPRESSION


Well, they could have knocked me over with a feather with all that knowledge!  {In my 3rd blog after surgery, I was hypothesizing about where their research was headed.  8 years ago}

I don't have time right now, but I want to look up this reference at the end:
This study is supported by the following NIH grants: P50 MH077083; RO1MH080880; UL1 RR025008; M01 RR0039; and K23 MH086690.

Gotta run - more later (with maybe video - maybe not)

Article: Brain scans may help clinicians choose between talk therapy and medication treatment for depression

I found the article on a really cool website.

Whoa...  DARPA?????

I had heard rumors, but this seems to have all the info on the gov checking into DBS for all sorts of Brain Disorders

AND

They confirm my layman's observation that we are talking about significantly different types of disorders - 

Possibly different types of Depression (not just Uni & Bi)
