  • Description
  • Details

This fully-revised and updated fourth edition of Abrams' Electroconvulsive Therapy will remain the standard for the field for years to come.

In addition to the hundreds of new articles reviewed and incorporated into the text, the fourth edition includes an entirely new chapter on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation therapy, a reassessment of ultrabrief pulse therapy, a comprehensive critique of the validity of the seizure threshold-stimulus titration dosing method, a compelling rebuttal of recent claims of ECT-induced persistent or permanent memory dysfunction, a proposed mechanism for the almost universal experience of subjective memory improvement with ECT, and a new model for understanding the neurophysiological basis underlying effective ECT.
