    Breaking barriers with brain stimulation

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month. On the latest Community of Innovation podcast episode, hosts Drs. Allison Sekuler, President & Chief Scientist and Rosanne Aleong, Executive Director, Research, Innovation and Translation at CABHI, explore the benefits and address the common misconceptions of neuromodulation: an intervention that directly stimulates the human brain. Neuromodulation can be used to treat various health concerns, but in this episode, we focus in on its use for mental health treatment and dementia care.


    Our first guest, Dr. Tarek Rajji, senior scientist and chair of the Medical Advisory Committee at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), offers his expertise on brain stimulation for clients living with mental illness and dementia. Then Fatima, our second guest, shares her inspiring journey with brain stimulation as a form of treatment for a neurocognitive disorder.
