Can EEG change the game? Perspectives of electrophysiological measures in treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders


Sebastian Olbrich is working at the University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland, Department of Psychiatry, psychotherapy and Psychosomatics. Besides the clinical work his interest belongs to research questions that might help to improve the treatment options that we currently have for neuropsychiatric disorders. The usage of electrophysiological methods such as the electroencephalogram (EEG) or the electrocardiogram (ECG) allow the assessment of neuronal activity at different levels, in healthy subjects as well as in patients. From this perspective, the future for analysing such complex datasets in order to individualize treatment can be found in applied neuronal networks («deep learning», «machine learning»).
