Deep brain stimulation depression a decade of progress with helen s mayberg m d

Helen S. Mayberg was born in 1956 in California. She is an American neurologist. Mayberg is known in particular for her work delineating abnormal brain function in patients with major depression using functional neuroimaging. This work led to the first pilot study of deep brain stimulation (DBS), a reversible method of selective modulation of a specific brain circuit, for patients with treatment-resistant depression.


Service and Awards

Mayberg is active in a wide variety of scientific organizations including the Society for Neuroscience, the Society of Biological Psychiatry, the American Neurological Association, the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, and the Organization for Human Brain Mapping. She is a current member of the Dana Alliance and the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation Scientific Council, and serves on the editorial boards of the journals Neuroimage, Human Brain Mapping, Brain Stimulation, Neuroinformatics, Brain Imaging, and Behavior and Brain Structure and Function. She was elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies in 2008. Dr. Mayberg is also a member of the Governing Board of the International Neuroethics Society.
