Dr Camilla Nord is a neuroscientist and MRC Investigator Scientist at the University of Cambridge, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. After completing an undergraduate degree in Physiology, Psychology, and Philosophy at Magdalen College, Oxford, she undertook a PhD at University College London with Prof. Jonathan Roiser on the role of dorsolateral prefrontal cortex dysfunction in depression. Her key interests are in uncovering cognitive and neural mechanisms common across different neuropsychiatric disorders and testing whether any of these mechanisms could serve as “biomarkers” that might help us predict response to different treatments.

Neurobiological predictors of response to tDCS-enhanced psychological therapy in depression

We conducted a randomised controlled trial to test whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) would enhance clinical response to cognitive behavioural therapy in depression. We showed a 20% improvement of real over sham tDCS, which was not significant. However, we found that baseline dorsolateral prefrontal cortex activation was specifically associated with response to tDCS. This could potentially have use as a “biomarker” identifying patients who might respond to tDCS.
