For many patients struggling with the daily challenges of a psychiatric or neurologic disorder, today’s pharmacological therapies simply aren’t enough. Our Center, based at Mount Sinai West, focuses on innovative research strategies to advance the use of deep brain stimulation (DBS) and other therapies to treat medication-resistant neuropsychiatric disorders including:
- Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Tourette’s syndrome
- Chronic pain
Serving as a hub linking multiple scientific disciplines and clinical teams, the Nash Family Center for Advanced Circuit Therapeutics (C-ACT) brings neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists together with neuroimaging specialists, electrophysiologists, data scientists, engineers, and basic neuroscientists to address unmet clinical need through research. Our Center merges scientific discoveries of our research team with the empirical insights of our expert clinicians to rethink the way neuromodulation treatments are developed, personalized, and delivered to patients.
