Areas of Research
The overarching goal of Dr. Mulsant’s work is to improve the treatment of younger and older persons with severe mental disorders. He has designed and conducted clinical trials for “hard–to-treat” older patients with severe mental disorders (including late-life depression, bipolar disorder, psychotic depression, treatment-resistant depression, mild cognitive impairment [MCI], or dementia). He has used these clinical trials of pharmacotherapy, psychosocial interventions, or brain stimulation as platforms to identify biomarkers associated with mental disorders and treatment outcomes.
His current research is supported by Brain Canada to assess the efficacy of cognitive remediation and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on preventing Alzheimer’s Dementia in older patients with a major depressive disorder in remission or MCI and by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to test in a 5-site study the effectiveness of a two-step pharmacotherapy algorithm for bringing about and sustaining remission in older patients with treatment-resistant major depression.
