I’m speaking based on my understanding from my neuroscience minor in 2010. If anyone has additional information, please add!
From what I recall: no, we don’t really know how/why ECT has shown to be effective for some individuals with depression. The mechanisms are a bit misunderstood, similar to some antidepressants as well (and some psychological treatments!)
I know that more modern ECT is a bit more “civilized” than how it used to be. There’s much more care and precaution involved.
Here is an article that explains some possible reasons.
In several of my psych courses, we discussed the possibility that electricity “resets” the chemicals of the brain which causes the patient to temporarily feel better but it does cause some damage to short term memory function I believe.
But modern day ECT involves putting patients under anesthesia to minimize convulsions and pain. It is also my understanding that it is typically only used when a patient has exhausted all other treatment options and is still suffering from severe levels of depression.
Capaldi was great. Very good actor, I’m excited to see what he does this season.
Everything else - meh? Maybe I’m being too cynical/analytical. The references sprinkled throughout were…ok? They seemed a little far-reaching at times, though.
That’s how I felt.
Bascially… love Capaldi, hate Moffat.
1. I like Capaldi. He’s awesome.
2. Still don’t like Clara. It’s not called Clara Who, it’s called Doctor Who. The story should have introduced and focused on Capaldi more, not on Clara’s ineptitude. Like seriously the episode was more about her coming to terms with Capaldi than actual Doctor…

WASHINGTON, DC — Earlier today, the National Bar Association filed a lawsuit against the City of Ferguson, MO and the Ferguson Police Department seeking any and all incident reports, investigative reports, notes and memorandums prepared by Ferguson Police officers, in-dash camera video, photographs, cellphone video and recordings in connection with the shooting death of Michael Brown.
The National Bar Association also sent a Preservation of Evidence Notice to both entities requesting that they preserve the police officers’ raw notes of all statements, observations, and data collected from the scene of the incident, specifically including the officer involved and all responding officers, officer detail logs from the crime scene, and video & photographic evidence related to the August 9, 2014, fatal shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent arrests of protestors in the City of Ferguson.
"There can be no full, fair and accurate accounting in any state or federal criminal or civil action unless any and all footage is carefully preserved," stated Pamela J. Meanes, President of the National Bar Association. "We want to ensure the family of Micheal Brown and the residents of St. Louis understand correct measures are being taken to protect evidence regarding this tragic incident."
In wake of the recent events taking place in Ferguson and across the country, the National Bar Association has developed a task force that will evaluate complaints of police misconduct and/or police brutality nationwide, an online petition has been created calling for an independent investigation for the death of Micheal Brown Jr. and an open book request has been filed in 25 cities and states for information on police actions.
The lawsuit comes days after the City of Ferguson Police Department released the name of Darren Wilson, the officer identified of shooting Brown.
…. oh my.
