Electroencephalographic Biomarkers in Patients Receiving Propofol for Treatment-Resistant Depression

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

I analyzed EEG recordings from patients receiving high-dose propofol sedation to treat Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD). During treatments patients experience a phenomenon called Burst-Suppression which appears on the EEG. I helped extract and analyze these bursts, and based on the data obtained, different categories of bursts were created to act as electrical biomarkers. These biomarkers are correlated with patient outcome and are used to further understand TRD and propofol as a treatment.
