What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Neuroscience

Colleen Loo focuses on Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Depression, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Randomized controlled trial. Transcranial direct-current stimulation is a subfield of Neuroscience that she explores. Her Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Audiology and Scalp.

Her Depression research includes elements of Physical therapy, Clinical psychology, Mood and MEDLINE. Her work deals with themes such as Motor cortex and Prefrontal cortex, which intersect with Transcranial magnetic stimulation. Her Randomized controlled trial research integrates issues from Hamd and Psychiatry.

Her most cited work include:

  • Efficacy and safety of transcranial magnetic stimulation in the acute treatment of major depression: A multisite randomized controlled trial. (1037 citations)
  • Safety of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation: Evidence Based Update 2016. (516 citations)
  • Low intensity transcranial electric stimulation: Safety, ethical, legal regulatory and application guidelines (336 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Colleen Loo mostly deals with Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Depression, Electroconvulsive therapy, Psychiatry and Neuroscience. Colleen Loo combines subjects such as Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Audiology, Working memory, Randomized controlled trial and Brain stimulation with her study of Transcranial direct-current stimulation. Her research integrates issues of Physical therapy and Clinical psychology, Mood in her study of Depression.

In her study, Treatment-resistant depression is strongly linked to Cognition, which falls under the umbrella field of Electroconvulsive therapy. The various areas that Colleen Loo examines in her Psychiatry study include Psychotherapist and Tolerability. Her Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Stimulation, Motor cortex and Neuroplasticity study are her primary interests in Neuroscience.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Transcranial direct-current stimulation (66.36%)
  • Depression (56.68%)
  • Electroconvulsive therapy (54.38%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Transcranial direct-current stimulation (66.36%)
  • Electroconvulsive therapy (54.38%)
  • Cognition (32.72%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Electroconvulsive therapy, Cognition, Depression and Brain stimulation. Her Transcranial direct-current stimulation study combines topics in areas such as Major depressive disorder, Working memory, Randomized controlled trial and Mood. Her Electroconvulsive therapy research incorporates elements of Stimulus, Ictal eeg, Cognitive screening and Psychotherapist.

Her Cognition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Retrospective cohort study, Treatment-resistant depression and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. Her study on Depression is covered under Psychiatry. Colleen Loo has researched Brain stimulation in several fields, including Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Cognitive training and Neurostimulation.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Side-effects associated with ketamine use in depression: a systematic review (141 citations)
  • International randomized-controlled trial of transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in depression. (79 citations)
  • Noninvasive brain stimulation in psychiatric disorders: a primer (56 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Major depressive disorder

Her primary scientific interests are in Transcranial direct-current stimulation, Depression, Major depressive disorder, Electroconvulsive therapy and Psychiatry. Colleen Loo has included themes like Intervention, Brain stimulation, Randomized controlled trial and Audiology in her Transcranial direct-current stimulation study. Her Depression research incorporates elements of Ketamine, Anesthesia, Mental health and Mood.

Her research integrates issues of Meta-analysis, Bipolar disorder, Clinical trial and Physical medicine and rehabilitation in her study of Major depressive disorder. Her research on Physical medicine and rehabilitation often connects related topics like Transcranial magnetic stimulation. Colleen Loo usually deals with Electroconvulsive therapy and limits it to topics linked to Cognition and Mania, Retrospective cohort study, Effective treatment and Psychiatric status rating scales.
