Available: 09/21/19, Expires: 05/31/20

Opportunity to gain experience with the clinical assessments and treatment interventions used in mood disorders and cognitive impairment among older adults. Students will develop an understanding of cognitive assessment through involvement with industry-sponsored clinical trials, and they will receive training in the administration of mood severity scales and neuropsychology testing within the context of several investigator-initiated studies. They will also become familiar with multi-modal neuroimaging techniques such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS). In addition, students will have the opportunity to engage with traditional interventions as well as novel treatments like Low Field Magnetic Stimulation (LFMS), a treatment discovered and developed at McLean. Finally, students will be able to pursue opportunities to hone their data analysis and literature review skills. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Brent Forester at bforester@partners.org.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
