    Moment-to-moment brain signal variability reliably predicts psychiatric treatment outcome

    Månsson, K. N. T., Waschke, L., Manzouri, A., Furmark, T., Fischer, H., & Garrett, D. D. (2021). Moment-to-moment brain signal variability reliably predicts psychiatric treatment outcome. Biological Psychiatry. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biopsych.2021.09.026
     
    Presentation on YouTube, click here!
     
    Cover art: The cover art is an illustration of how moment-to-moment brain signal variability differs across individuals. In this issue, Månsson et al. demonstrate that such individual differences in brain signal variability formed a reliable and accurate predictor of treatment success in patients with social anxiety disorder receiving cognitive behavioral therapy. The cover was art directed by Heejung Jung (Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Dartmouth College) and graphical design was executed by Kristoffer N. T. Månsson (Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet).
