Impaired Connections Play a Role in Brain Disorders

Decreased (anterior to posterior and inter-hemispheric) intra-network connectivity in patients with neuropsychiatric disorders prior to treatment

Now, let’s take a look at what happens after the first 3 years of life. Let’s talk about what happens when some of those essential neural connections are damaged or broken.

Think of brain development as a wiring process. Imagine a circuit board where connections between neurons are made and fine-tuned. The connections we use regularly usually become stronger and more complex. But neglected connections are eliminated over time and cause problems.

In fact, many psychiatric disorders affect the connectivity of some very important brain networks.

Let’s dive a little deeper and explore the complexity between neural connections.

To start, think of your brain as a small country with 4 states (Cerebrum, Cerebellum, BrainStem and the Diencephalon). Imagine that each of these brain regions have “highways” that help connect to the other brain regions. These brain highways are called network connections and healthy connections are essential for good brain health.

But, as we know, illnesses of the brain do NOT follow a one-size-fits-all treatment approach.

You are as unique as your neural connections. Our advanced fMRI technology helps us treat complex brain illnesses with advanced scientific treatments.

With fMRI guided TMS, we’ll look beyond incomplete (abnormal) connections. Our research points to many ways a network can fail and it doesn’t always mean the connection is “broken”.
