Mohn Medical Imaging Visualization Centre
ECT-MRI Research Collaboration was founded at a collaborative meeting in Bergen
in June 2015, and is coordinated by Leif Oltedal. The principal idea behind
this initiative is that collaboration and mega-analyses of combined study data will
lead to new discoveries. In the first phase, GEMRIC will include up to 550
subjects including patients (clinical and neuroimaging data before and after
ECT) and controls (healthy or patients with depression that receive other treatments).
However, with our latest study “The
GEMRIC study for determining the mechanisms of action of electroconvulsive
therapy”, the collaboration will be extended and we aim at increasing the
sample size to 2000 subjects.
