Title: SYSTEM, METHOD AND COMPUTER-ACCESSIBLE MEDIUM FOR PREDICTING RESPONSE TO ELECTROCONVULSIVE THERAPY BASED ON BRAIN FUNCTIONAL CONNECTIVITY PATTERNS
Abstract:
An exemplary system, method and computer-accessible medium for determining an effect(s) of a convulsive stimulation therapy(ies) on a patient(s) can be provided, which can include, for example, receiving first information related to a visual network or a default mode network of a brain of the patient(s), receiving second information related to a subgenual ACC or a default mode (DMN network of the brain of the patient(s), and determining the effect(s) of the convulsive stimulation therapy(ies) based on a relationship between the first information and the second information. The convulsive stimulation therapy(ies) can be an electroconvulsive therapy or a magnetic seizure therapy.
