Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Major depressive disorder

Harold A. Sackeim mainly investigates Electroconvulsive therapy, Psychiatry, Depression, Anesthesia and Major depressive disorder. Harold A. Sackeim interconnects Magnetic seizure therapy, Seizure threshold, Cognition, Antidepressant and Prospective cohort study in the investigation of issues within Electroconvulsive therapy. His studies deal with areas such as Internal medicine, Randomized controlled trial and Clinical trial as well as Psychiatry.

His work deals with themes such as Pharmacotherapy and Pediatrics, which intersect with Depression. The various areas that Harold A. Sackeim examines in his Major depressive disorder study include Intention-to-treat analysis, Mood disorders, Randomization, Number needed to treat and Generalized seizure. His work focuses on many connections between Treatment-resistant depression and other disciplines, such as Bipolar disorder, that overlap with his field of interest in Vagus nerve stimulation.

His most cited work include:

  • Acute and Longer- Term Outcomes in Depressed Outpatients Requiring One or Several Treatment Steps: A STAR*D Report (2853 citations)
  • Efficacy and safety of transcranial magnetic stimulation in the acute treatment of major depression: A multisite randomized controlled trial. (1037 citations)
  • Sequenced treatment alternatives to relieve depression (STAR * D): rationale and design (828 citations)

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

Harold A. Sackeim mostly deals with Electroconvulsive therapy, Psychiatry, Depression, Internal medicine and Anesthesia. His studies in Electroconvulsive therapy integrate themes in fields like Magnetic seizure therapy, Seizure threshold, Stimulus, Cognition and Antidepressant. Harold A. Sackeim has researched Psychiatry in several fields, including Randomized controlled trial, Pediatrics, Clinical psychology and Clinical trial.

The concepts of his Depression study are interwoven with issues in Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Pharmacotherapy and Vagus nerve stimulation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocrinology, Psychosis, Schizophrenia and Cardiology in addition to Internal medicine. His Anesthesia study incorporates themes from Bipolar disorder and Electroencephalography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Electroconvulsive therapy (34.86%)
  • Psychiatry (30.81%)
  • Depression (28.38%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2021)?

  • Electroconvulsive therapy (34.86%)
  • Psychiatry (30.81%)
  • Randomized controlled trial (11.89%)

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

Electroconvulsive therapy, Psychiatry, Randomized controlled trial, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Internal medicine are his primary areas of study. His Electroconvulsive therapy research incorporates elements of Anesthesia, Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression, Bipolar disorder, Cognition and Amnesia. Harold A. Sackeim regularly ties together related areas like Adverse effect in his Psychiatry studies.

His Randomized controlled trial research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Antidepressant and Depression. Treatment-resistant depression is the focus of his Depression research. His Transcranial magnetic stimulation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Major depressive disorder, Prefrontal cortex and Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Between 2007 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Daily left prefrontal transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy for major depressive disorder: a sham-controlled randomized trial (613 citations)
  • Effects of Pulse Width and Electrode Placement on the Efficacy and Cognitive Effects of Electroconvulsive Therapy (313 citations)
  • A randomized, placebo-controlled trial of repeated IV antibiotic therapy for Lyme encephalopathy (235 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Major depressive disorder

His primary areas of study are Psychiatry, Randomized controlled trial, Electroconvulsive therapy, Internal medicine and Transcranial magnetic stimulation. His work in Antidepressant and Treatment-resistant depression is related to Psychiatry. The Electroconvulsive therapy study combines topics in areas such as Anesthesia, Venlafaxine, Cognition, Amnesia and Prospective cohort study.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Anesthesia, Bipolar disorder is strongly linked to Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression. His Transcranial magnetic stimulation study combines topics in areas such as Major depressive disorder, Depression, Physical therapy and Young adult. Harold A. Sackeim combines subjects such as Prefrontal cortex and Anxiety with his study of Depression.
